    Dang. Wish it were a weekend game and I would try to make the trip. Pretty cool though.

    I'm guessing it is a "dry run" for playing the ACC Tourney at Slugger. I'm sure McDonnell wants a chance to get his guys on the field to learn some things. Similarly, the administrative folks definitely want to "run the traps" on things there as well.

    Of course, that assumes the ACC doesn't yank the ACC Tourney away from UofL now that KY also has a "bathroom bill."
