Purdue Baseball: The Regional Problem

Purdue baseball is having a fantastic season, but can they come up with a plan for postseason rewards?

Purdue Projected As No. 7 National Seed By Perfect Game

This is by far the best projection I have seen, as a National Seed assures Purdue that it will play at home (or close to it) until the College World Series. As for what that home will be, your guess is as good as mine. Alexander Field will not be done in time and Lambert cannot host because of no lights. Regionals are June 1-4, and Parkview Field in Ft. Wayne has a TinCaps game at 7pm on the First, but is free the rest of the weekend. For Super Regionals The TinCaps are home June 9-11. The South Bend Silverhawks are in-town all Regional weekend, but not Super Regionals. The Indianapolis Indians are home both weekends, so who knows where we could host.
