Bats Awakening Early for BIG EAST and Big Ten Teams

Historically, many "northern" baseball teams have needed a few games for their bats to wake up - with the thinking being that the hitters require time for adjusting to hitting outdoors (as opposed to in an indoor facility; pitchers, on the other hand, usually are further ahead than the hitters on opening weekend).

Somebody forgot to tell that theory to several of the offenses at the BIG EAST/Big Ten Challenge:

• Purdue (11) and Cincinnati (10) both put up double-digit runs in their opening-day battle
• Seton Hall shocked Minnesota by winning 11-2
• St. John's erupted for a 15-6 win over Penn State on Friday night and just put up a 12-spot on Iowa in the first inning (details to come in next blog post)
• West Virginia handed Indiana a 14-4 loss on day-1
• ... and Indiana is close to posting a convincing win over Georgetown (now 11-4, in the 8th)
