Kovanda on All-Tourney Team

Ohio State second baseman Cory Kovanda has been named to the Big Ten All-Tournament Team. Kovanda was 3-for-7 in the Buckeyes' two games in Ann Arbor. He was 1-for-3 in the opener against Illinois and then was 2-for-4 with one RBI and two runs scored vs. Indiana. His sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth tied the game, 8-8. Ohio State ended up losing 10-8 in 10 innings. A loss that ended the season.

The Big Ten is likely a one-bid league this season. Michigan won both the regular season and tournament titles after coming back from a 2-0 hole to beat Purdue 3-2 Saturday night.

We'll find out for sure Monday at 12:30 p.m., ET, when the 64-team NCAA tournament field is announced on ESPN.

I'll try to keep it updated, but some of the guys playing this summer.
So far I've foun most of the Great Lakes League rosters and:

-Dew & Rupert for the Columbus All-Americans.
-Hurley for the Cincinnati Steam.
-Kovanda for the Delaware Cows.

Others of note
Abraham and Powers of UM will be with Hyannis in the Cape Cod League
Evan Crawford of Indiana will be with Cotuit in the Cape.
Bashmore an Phagley will be in the Cape with Wareham.

No Buckeyes on a Cape roster right now. Not a good sign for those thinking/wanting Hale and Shuck to come back.
