Pitcher Helps Michigan State To Historic NCAA Bid…
Multiple NCAA Tournament bids have not been common in recent years for the Big Ten. The conference has had just one NCAA representative in each of the last two years, so things were tense in East Lansing on Selection Monday as pitcher Tony Bucciferro and his Michigan State teammates waited to find out if they would receive an NCAA bid.
The Spartans did receive a bid to join Big Ten regular season and tournament champion Purdue as the Big Ten’s two teams in the 2012 NCAA field of 64. In this exclusive podcast with CB360 co-editor Sean Stires, Bucciferro discusses the nerves and excitement in the room on Monday as he and his team awaited their NCAA announcement, the nerves he had watching a 10-2 lead over Nebraska evaporate last week at the B1G Tournament, the excitement of going to the Palo Alto Regional this week and more!
Tony Bucciferro – 6’3 – 200 – Sr. – Joliet, IL
