Returning from Christmas break in the preseason, Ethan Phillips aspired to qualify for Indiana baseball's travel roster. Opening Day was a mere seven weeks away. Phillips was unsuccessful, however, and didn't tour with the team in the first few weekend-road series.
In 19 contests at Bart Kaufman Field, Indiana baseball has lost just once — the 15-straight home wins to start this season marked the second-longest streak in program history.
On Wednesday evening, sheltering from the heat inside the third-base suite at Bart Kaufman Field, Indiana baseball's head coach Jeff Mercer revealed he holds private one-on-one meetings with veteran players to survey the team's mentality and diligence.
Indiana freshman second baseman Tyler Cerny, known for his back-handed sliding grabs and flashy off-balance throws, braced for the incoming lively ground ball. Cerny bent his knees and puffed his chest, at least trying to keep the ball in front, had he not fielded it smoothly.
Morgan Colopy blacked out for the last 180 feet of his trip around the basepaths, unable to recollect spiking his helmet rounding third base. Colopy recalled seeing teammates leaping over the bullpen wall onto the field, but didn't notice his first home run this season clank off the left-field foul pole — the walk-off hit in Indiana baseball's 2-0 extra-innings victory over Iowa.
“It's baseball; it happens.”
Indiana baseball brought out the brooms for the fourth straight weekend. The Hoosiers may not have swept the entire three-game series at Penn State, but, after dropping Saturday's series-opener 7-2, Indiana swept Sunday's doubleheader 4-1 and 22-11, winning the series.
Phillip Glasser's name is likely circled on every adversary's scouting report. Indiana baseball's leadoff hitter poses headaches to pitchers. But to the public, the senior shortstop has recently gone unnoticed. Why? Repetition. In 25 games this year, Glasser has 44 hits in 100 at-bats.
Freshman Devin Taylor, batting third in Indiana baseball's lineup, uppercut the first pitch in his third-inning at-bat, launching the ball 427 feet over the fence. Indiana went up 3-0 in the second game of Sunday's home doubleheader against Ohio State.

Five. That's how many home runs Indiana baseball hit in Thursday afternoon's series-clinching 23-5 victory over Morehead State University. If that's not remarkable enough, well, the Hoosiers struck all five in one inning — the fourth.
The bat flip debate: either yes, players should celebrate thunderous home runs without retaliation, or no, that's too excessive, perhaps even disrespectful. Kentucky baseball's Hunter Gilliam evidently doesn't agree with the latter. Neither does Indiana's head coach Jeff Mercer.
Indiana baseball's brooms themselves required dusting. The Hoosiers' last three-or-more-game sweep over an opponent happened on April 25, 2021 — almost two years ago in the Big Ten conference-only COVID-19 schedule. Indiana didn’t sweep any team in 2022.
About an hour after Indiana baseball's 5-3 comeback victory over Bellarmine University Thursday, pitching machines revved in the indoor hitting facility at Bart Kaufman Field. Redshirt sophomore outfielder Morgan Colopy stood in the batting cage, holding his bat.

Indiana sophomore infielder Josh Pyne watched an outside-corner strike curve past home plate, pushing the count to full — three balls and two strikes. Pyne exited the right-handed batter's box, adjusted his helmet and re-entered to copy his routine.
