The Illinois baseball team is a national seed for the first time, meaning they'll host a Super Regional June 5-8 if they can win the first NCAA Regional this weekend at Illinois Field. Ohio, Notre Dame, and Wright State will also play at Illinois Field May 29-31.
The Illinois baseball team will continue postseason play at their own ballpark next weekend, hosting their first ever NCAA regional. The Illini have been announced as one of 16 teams that will host games at Illinois Field during the national championship tournament’s opening round.
The Illini baseball team stays alive in the Big Ten Tournament with a 2-0 shutout of Michigan State Friday. They play Michigan at 1 p.m. Saturday, and hope to play them again Saturday evening for a shot at the championship game.
