Missouri Tigers Softball TicketsThe Missouri Tigers headed into 2020 with another winning season under their belt. In 2019, they made it to the NCAA regionals, once again, which put their total number of regional appearances at 23. They've also made it to the Super Regionals eight times. In total, the Mizzou Tigers softball program has a winning overall tournament record that sits at 53-49 (pct .519). Last year's team had 11 newcomers and only graduated three seniors, meaning the 2020 squad will likely be together for the next couple of years, apart from the four juniors who are now seniors. Jazmine Rollin, a freshman in 2019, was named to the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman team. Rollin also led the team in stolen bases with 17. Kimberly Wert, another new face in 2019, transferred to the Tigers from Hofstra and pulled off 19 homers and led the team in RBIs with 48. Get your Missouri Tigers softball tickets today at StubHub.
