If Minnesota Twins baseball isn’t your thing and Kenny Chesney/Jason Aldean and crew aren’t your thing, you probably think you don’t have a good reason to head to Target Field this year. You are wrong. I apologize for being so blunt.
The Big Ten Tournament is coming back to Target Field this May and tickets are now on sale. You can purchase an All-Tournament pass for $30 which seems to be a steal of a deal. Single game tickets are also available for $10 as well.
The top eight teams in the Big Ten make the tournament. Right now the hometown University of Minnesota Golden Gophers would be the last team in with a conference record of 6-9. The top six teams all have above .500 records and seventh place Nebraska has a .500 record at 6-6.
Leading the charge in the Big Ten this season is Illinois. Illinois has only lost one game in the Big Ten so far with a 10-1 record and a 33-6-1 overall mark. The neighbors to the south, Iowa, are right behind with a 10-2 record in conference and a 21-11 overall record.
Rounding out the top six is Ohio State, Maryland, Michigan and Michigan State.
The cellar of the Big Ten belongs to Purdue with a conference record of 1-11.
The tournament bracket can be found here. Right now it is only game numbers. The tournament kicks off May 20 and goes through May 24 in downtown Minneapolis.
