I don’t see how Big 10 teams can play baseball. It’s freezing cold around here and we’ll be lucky to have even halfway decent “baseball weather” in 4 or 5 weeks. I know a lot of them go south but they can’t do that for a month or so.
Explains why it’s almost always a team from the south or west that wins it all.

A few years ago when we were hosting Quinnipiac at the beginning of the season, their outfielders had trouble tracking high fly balls, and they misplayed and let fall at least a couple of them, IIRC. A parent of one of their players said that because of their weather they had yet to be able to do any outside practicing yet.

Makes a lot of sense. It is 28 degrees here today. We have crappy weather in the Chicago area and there are several Big 10 teams that are even farther north.
