Dugout Antics at Big 10 Tourney

Saturday, May 25, 2013 5:43 PM

Baseball is an incredible sport, and it’s even more so when teams have fun with it. And that is exactly what happened when Minnesota and Illinois met up during the Big Ten Tournament elimination game. Before the game, Illinois players stood outside their dugout loosening up with actions of shooting birds in the air with a bow and arrow and finishing the sequence by having a player scamper around the dirt like a dog. That’s how everyone gets loose before a game, right?

In addition, I seriously could not keep a straight face when Minnesota players mimicked their coach as he spoke to the reporters. They had a fake camera and headset built with Gatorade containers and cups, copying every action that their coach made. The best part of it, however, was when the interview ended. The players had just enough time to toss the props to the side as their coach turned around!
