Penn State Baseball Clinches Spot in B1G Tournament

Despite an 18-7 shellacking against Illinois, Penn State Baseball clinched its spot in the Big Ten Tournament yesterday due to losses from Nebraska and Northwestern.

For those that don’t follow baseball (like myself) and are thinking, “Wait, not every team gets in the Big Ten Tournament?” Well imaginary figure I created, you would be correct. Only eight teams from the Big Ten make the conference’s tournament, so Penn State Baseball making it is pretty impressive when you consider this is Penn State Baseball after all. This is actually the first time the Nittany Lions will be playing in it since 2012, which means this also marks the first time manager Rob Cooper has taken Penn State the Big Ten Tourney.
