    team as Western Illinois used 8 pitchers to beat Iowa.
    boy that coach was sure desperate to get a win over a BT team or maybe just to get a win over Iowa
    1st and 2nd inning just 1 then they changed pitcher in Inning #4 then in #5 then in #6 then again in #7, twice in the 8th.

    College baseball rosters are really complicated. I know they changed some of the rules but when I played it was a 35 man roster, and no limit to how many can be pitchers. Also keep in mind that in college there are a lot of guys that play both the field and pitch. I mean Mark McGwire was a pitcher in college too, basically everyone is a pitcher at that level.

    But as to what you said, that is not uncommon at all. It had nothing to do with it being Iowa or a Big10 team. Mid majors make the college world series a lot nowadays.

    I know a lot of mid-major you can throw that term out the window, just thought it strange that a non conference team would change pitchers that often, now a conference team I can understand,

    just like in a game between Iowa and Ohio State, OSU used 7 pitchers in 2 innings, it didn't do them much good they had a 9-2 lead going into the bottom of the 7th. then lost 11-10 in the bottom of the 9th to Iowa.

    Iowa has very good group of young players, they just got a commit from a 9.5 pitcher and a 9.0 OF although Heller got a assist from Fran McCaffrey the HC of the BB team as his son will be player both in BB and baseball, his son is also a 4* BB player.

    this will be Heller's 2nd straight trip, making it the 4th time in Iowa's history. the trip to the BTT was not easy as they Beat the #1 seed Nebraska, #3 seed Minnesota and #4 seed Maryland.

    Iowa will be looking to win their 1st BTT and 2nd trip to the NCAA's in Heller's 4 years of being Iowa's HC.

    looking forward to better success in the future.

    I didn't think that each player on a team could pitch as well, Iowa wins the BTT Championship and will be the 4 seed in the Houston regional.

    1st BTT Championship and Heller has led Iowa to back to back BTT Championship games and this will be their 2nd trip to the NCAA's regionals in his 4 years.

    Yes every single player can pitch. Jesus I was a Division 1 pitcher, i know for a 100% fact. Sometimes I think you want to argue, just to argue.
