Congrats to the University of Minnesota Gopher baseball team who won the B1G Tournament over the weekend. The Gophers also won the regular season title this year.

Gopher baseball will now host one of the NCAA Regionals at Siebert Field. Minnesota will face Canisius at 7pm on Friday. UCLA will take on Gonzaga in the other game. The regional is double elimination, and the winner moves on to a Super-Regional.

    Congrats, of course the Badgers for the 20th something season were undefeated. Damn shame that UW hasn’t restored baseball to the Badger sports roster. What I keep hearing is they can’t afford it, because of title 19, along with men’s baseball they’d have to add another woman’s sport and they claim both would be non self supporting. Again congrats to the Gophers !!!!
