Word on the street is the BigTen wants to make playing the BigTen tournament in baseball in OSU every year. They messed up on scheduling it at the minor league park in Columbus, so they want to just put it at OSU's college field.
From here on out, they supposedly are working on a 3-6 year contract with the minor league park in Columbus to keep it there semi-permanently.
They're basing this off one year where they had a good turn out. This is stupid as it gives OSU a much bigger semi-home field advantage. It means Michigan has to play in a more hostile environment than any of the other visiting teams the next time we make a tournament.
If they're going to go with a pre-planned site, they should be making it either neutral or rotating around. If not, go back to the team that wins the regular season hosting the tournament. There's no reason to reward the Buckeyes home town advantage.
I'm fairly unhappy about this, and it's not even official yet. I hear it's just a little over a week away from being announced. Just wanted to vent.
