Today at Rocky Miller Park in Evanston, Northwestern split a doubleheader with Minnesota. The 'Cats won the first game 1-0 and lost the second game 1-0. I was at four innings of the first of the two seven inning games. NU remains in a first place tie in the Big Ten with Michigan who split their doubleheader with Illinois in Champaign today.

I overheard talk there today that if Northwestern wins the Big Ten regular season, they will not be able to host the Big Ten Tournament. The tournament is usually hosted by the regular season champion. Because games are played at day and night in the tournament, Rocky Miller Park would be inadequate because it does not have lights. I wonder if NU would be willing to bring in the Musco lights which are used whenever NU football has a night game at Ryan/Dyche. Moreover, Rocky Miller Park's seating capacity of 600+ would pose a problem.
