Look who's in first! Spartan Baseball team atop Big Ten standings
The Spartan Baseball team doesn't get much love around a university that seems to go to a final four every other year and has reached a bowl game in three straight football seasons. It also doesn't help that in the past 15 seasons the Spartan baseball team has a total of just four winning seasons.
Throw in the fact that the last Big Ten championship came 31 years ago in 1979, and you can see why everyone may not have jumped on the Spartan 'band-wagon' just yet.
But as of today the Spartans are in a three-way tie atop the Big Ten standing with a record of 22-6 (4-2 in the Big Ten). To put that into perspective the Spartans had just 23 total wins last season alone.
This weekend the Spartans host a three-game series against a fellow first place team, the Ohio State Buckeyes (19-19, 4-2). With the football team currently batting on the practice field and the basketball team healing for another run at a championship for next season, I suggest you make your way out to the beautiful McLane Baseball Stadium at Kobs Field for some quality Spartan baseball.
