Horenberger Bass Classic
Illinois State and Illinois Wesleyan renew their baseball rivalry in the Horenberger Bass Classic. The annual game was rekindled in 2004, but has been canceled because of rain three of the last four years.
Both teams come in on winning streaks as the Redbirds have won eight in a row and 15 of their last 17, while the Titans have claimed four straight and 19 of 22 games.
