The Big Ten Network is the ultimate destination for Big Ten spring football coverage, with studio shows airing Wednesday and Saturday nights through May 4. In all, the network will telecast nine Big Ten spring games and dedicate more than 26 hours to Big Ten spring football, with every team receiving live television or streaming coverage.

‘Big Ten Diamond Report’ to Review Weekend of Baseball, Softball

Big Ten baseball and softball fans can tune in to the Big Ten Diamond Report at 5 PM ET on Sunday for a complete recap of the weekend’s action. Mike Hall joins former Iowa pitcher and 1989 MLB first-round pick Cal Eldred and two-time Big Ten Player of the Year Tammy Williams to review the top headlines and preview upcoming matchups around the Big Ten.

Weekend coverage begins Saturday with Game 2 of the Northwestern-Purdue series from Rocky Miller Park in Evanston, Ill. First pitch is slated for 4 PM ET. The Boilermakers currently stand in a three-way tie for third place in the Big Ten standings with a 5-4 league record while the Wildcats sit one game back at 4-5 in conference play. The network’s Wayne Randazzo and Danan Hughes will be on the call.

At noon ET on Sunday, defending Big Ten Baseball Champion Minnesota concludes its three-game road series against Indiana. The Hoosiers have claimed three straight league series victories to pull even with Michigan State (6-3) atop the Big Ten standings. Randazzo and Eldred will be on the call from Bloomington.

Immediately following that game, the Ohio State softball team will face Northwestern at Sharon J. Drysdale Field. First pitch is scheduled for 3 PM ET. Dan Kelly and Stacey Phillips will call the action from Evanston, Ill.

Viewers are invited to submit their Big Ten baseball and softball questions for the team of analysts to answer during each episode.
