Big Ten baseball is as good as its been in a long team. So good that if a team like Minnesota wins the Big Ten tournament this week, four teams from the conference could be headed to the NCAA tournament.

Only one Big Ten team reached the NCAA tournanment in each of the last four seasons.

The task of winning the Big Ten tourney won't be easy, but the fourth-seeded Gophers' path starts Wednesday against Illinois at noon at Target Field.
