Big Ten announces pairings for 2nd annual Big Ten/Big East baseball challenge

It has been awhile since there has been some baseball news here, but the Big Ten recently announced the pairings for the 2010 Big Ten/Big East baseball challenge. This event will kickoff the 2010 baseball season for both conferences. Purdue will face Villanova, Cincinnati, and Rutgers. This event drew rave reviews last year in the Clearwater/St. Petersburg area. It also drew plenty of attention to the two traditionally poor baseball conferences. I think this paid off with Ohio State, Minnesota, and Indiana all receiving invites to the NCAA Tournament. Here is the full Purdue schedule, with all games played in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area down in Florida:

February 26, 2010: 1:00 pm  Naimoli Complex  Villanova vs. Purdue

February 27, 2010: 1:00 pm  Jack Russell Stadium  Purdue vs. Cincinnati

February 28, 2010: 10:00 am Jack Russell Stadium  Purdue vs. Rutgers
