Twitter reacts to Penn State baseball’s Big Ten Tournament run

·2 min read

Penn State and baseball don’t usually go hand in hand on the national scene but a big upset to kickstart things has brought new attention.

Heading into the tournament, Penn State baseball had a measly record of 26-28 with them never gaining traction throughout the whole year. Like any tournament though, teams are able to find ways to click and get momentum at a moment’s notice and this Nittany Lion team seemed poised to do just that after an upset of Iowa to start things.

Iowa, who was 34-18 on the year, was seen as a heavy favorite in the tournament but the surprising loss to Penn State has left them reeling. Penn State would go on to lose to Rutgers in heartbreaking fashion in a 10-inning game but regardless, they remain alive for a Big Ten championship and social media was buzzing over that fact.
