All of Indiana's hard work in baseball is beginning to pay off.
Winners of 30 of the last 33 games, the Big Ten regular season title and the Big Ten Tournament championship, the Indiana baseball team was rewarded Monday with the No. 4 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.
The seed was revealed at Noon ET. Indiana's players had gathered at Yogi's Bar and Grill in Bloomington to watch the selection show.
The significance of the No. 4 seed overall?
If Indiana can get through this weekend's Regional at Bart Kaufman Field, then the Hoosiers will also host the Super Regional next week. Get out of the best-of-three Super Regional and Indiana would punch its ticket to a return trip to Omaha, Neb. For the 2014 College World Series.
Indiana will open regional play on Friday night at 7 p.m. against Youngstown State.
AllHoosiers.com's Justin Albers will have a reaction story from IU coach Tracy Smith and players following interviews at Yogi's.
