Ryan Hastings of Illinois went 2 for 3 on Monday in an intrasquad scrimmage to take a 2 games to 1 lead on the Orange Team. Hastings started the game off with a bunt single then stole second and scored on another base hit to bring him around. Coach Dan Hartleb had the following to say about Hastings “He brought some great energy to the Blue team today. They did a good job of coming out very focused and jumping on the Orange team early.” Hastings will try to lead the Illini in their goal of winning the Big 10 conference in 2007.

My good buddy from Big Ten HardBall has posted a link to the University of Illinois schedule for the 2007 season. There is a ton of open game dates during their annual spring break trip. There are zero marquee OOC games they will play at home this year but they have a full Big Ten schedule which is always a challenge to unseat Ohio State as the perennial power in that conference.
Full Schedule available here.
