Fans of parity would love the Big Ten Conference baseball race this season. With two weeks remaining in the regular season just two games separate first place from last place. Four teams sit at the top of the conference with 10-8 marks while the Iowa Hawkeyes are one of four teams sitting at 8-10.
Iowa coach Jack Dahm says the parity throughout the Midwest is incredible, and he says it means every game is important. He says the teams that are 10-8 might not qualify for the tournament if they lose a few games. The Hawkeyes play their final six games at home beginning with this weekend’s three game series with Ohio State.
Dahm says they don’t have to travel and they are getting done with finals, so they should be ready to go. The top six teams in the regular season will move on to the Big Ten post season tournament. Dahm says everything is so close that a lot of teams have pressure on them, including Ohio State, which is hosting the conference tournament. He says things could go down to the third of fourth tiebreaker.
