Notre Dame Baseball: Irish enter Big East Tournament as the 7th seed

Notre Dame’s Baseball team has qualified for the 2012 Big East Baseball Tournament. They will be the 7th seed and facing against #2 Saint John’s on Wednesday.

The Red Storm (33-21, 18-9 Big East), the preseason favorite of the conference’s head coaches, earned a share of its 7th Big East regular-season title. Notre Dame has had a great history in the conference tournament, but they are definitely going to be tested against a highly talented Saint John’s team.

Here is the schedule for this year’s tournament.
