Happy New Year everybody!
It’s nice to go into 2012 knowing that our team is the reigning Big Ten co-champions AND the Big Ten Tournament Champions. That’s gotta carry some weight and I’m sure help in terms of confidence. With our new, improved schedule (i.e. tougher) for 2012, we’ll be reaching for higher goals, I’m sure.
Before we go any further this year, I want to point out a new web site that Illinois baseball fans will want to check out. It’s called B1GBaseball.com. B1G Baseball is run by Chris Webb who maintained the Buckeye Nine and Buckeye State Baseball web sites. Webb has gone on to bigger and better things and is filling the void left by Big Ten Hardball which fell off the map a few years back.
Chris Webb is no doubt a Ohio State Buckeye fan but he’s a fantastic baseball analyst. I’m looking forward to reading more of his postings in the future on B1GBaseball.com.
Here’s to a even better 2012!
