    COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou baseball program is pleased to announce the formation of its new student fan section - Tigers On Deck - which will serve as the official Mizzou student fan section at Taylor Stadium. The student group, which was launched by the baseball program in conjunction with several Mizzou students, hopes to give Taylor Stadium a presence similar to that of the Tigers' Lair at Mizzou football games and the Zou Crew at Mizzou men's basketball games.

    This launch of Tigers On Deck this weekend will also coincide with the decades theme nights at Taylor Stadium. Each game this weekend will be themed around trends from past decades, beginning with 70s night on Friday before 80s day on Saturday and 90s day on Sunday. Each day, a member of the Tigers On Deck who best resembles a person from those respective decades will win a variety of prizes.
