The Mizzou baseball team, on the heels of its first ever Big 12 Tournament title over the weekend, will head to the NCAA Tournament Tucson Regional this weekend. The NCAA Regional appearance for Mizzou is its eighth in the last 10 seasons under head coach Tim Jamieson, who is now in his 18th year at the helm of the program. Action at the Regional will begin Friday and run through Monday (if necessary). The Tigers earned the fourth seed in the four-team regional.
Joining the fourth-seeded Tigers in the Tucson Regional is top-seeded Arizona as the Tigers will play the Wildcats in the first round on Friday night at 10 p.m. (CT) on ESPNU. BIG EAST foe Louisville earned the No. 2 seed while New Mexico State earned the No. 3 seed in the bracket. Mizzou of course met second-seeded Louisville back in 2007 when the Tigers hosted the NCAA Regional round in Columbia.
The NCAA Regional appearance for the Tigers is their eighth in the last 10 seasons and their first since 2009. Check out video from this afternoon’s live batting practice session.
