Illinois plays Michigan State in the Big Ten college baseball tournament in Omaha, Neb., Wednesday, May 21, 2014. Once the forgotten sport in the Big Ten, a push is underway to make its baseball relevant on the national level. An infusion of cash from the Big Ten Network has allowed five schools to open new stadiums since 2007. Coaches have bought in to a strategy to upgrade non-conference schedules. A major breakthrough came last year when Indiana was the first Big Ten team since 1984 to reach the College World Series. This week the conference tournament is being played on the grand stage of college baseball, TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)
