A bunch of Nebraska baseball players got stuck in a MN elevator


You're on a baseball team, visiting a new city for a tournament. You're with 23 of your teammates – and get stuck in an elevator.

What do you do?

Well, apparently, this:

Yes, that actually happened.

On Tuesday, the night before the 2015 Big Ten Tournament being played at Target Field, two dozen Nebraska Cornhuskers crammed into what looks like a hotel elevator and got stuck, CBS Sports says. And look at the videos – there was not much room to maneuver in there.

Senior catcher Tanner Lubach was nice enough to give us a peak inside via Twitter.

And the players eventually filing out, like it's a clown elevator.

Now, it doesn't looks like they were stuck for very long – the first video was posted at 1:44 p.m., and the final one just 13 minutes later.

So that's that. You can keep track of the Big Ten Tournament here – though the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers are not participating.
