IU Rutgers Baseball: BIG TEN CHAMPIONS

Or I am just spitballing here but we convince a certain slugger for the cubs to buy us a dome. 

Not sure I like that idea. To me baseball is an outdoor game plus don't think Schwarber has that kind of money. A new indoor stadium or added roof would be 10's of millions of dollars. Schwarber does well but not that well. 

Turf is best option for our situation despite its disadvantages.

Milto understandably struggles after a long delay giving up a couple singles but also a 6-4-3 double play ends the inning with no damage. 0-0 to Bottom 2. Also in a bit of bad but expected news, Illinois beat MSU 8-4 and Minny beat NW 5-4 in their first games so need a win to stay ahead of those teams. Neb and Mich tied 0-0 top 1.

Ashley K's to end inning but IU leads 2-0 after 2. Also Michigan took a 1-0 lead on Nebraska in top 1 but could of been much worse as UM had 2nd and 3rd no outs before their starter but two k's and pop out to limit damage.

To give you an idea of the $$ involved; in my neck of the woods the USTA a few years ago put a roof on top of the previously built Arthur Ashe stadium for US Open tennis. It cost $150 Million. If IU is gonna spend that cash, build a real football stadium or a modern basketball fieldhouse in lieu of Assembly Hall.

A roof or a stadium?  My old company just got a quote for a comparable sized building with a roof and no interior columns and it was like 20 million for the entire thing.

Important update. Neb UM playing double header tomorrow so will know by Saturday if Big Ten title in play which I kind of like. Also could be eliminated by first pitch tomorrow night if UM wins first two.

Milto no excuses. Leadoff double and single cuts lead in half than a 3 run HR to atrocious offense who hits almost none. This is what scares me. Milto has struggled lately and has not been a true ace. 4-2 Rutgers.
