COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Missouri softball team will get one final tune-up before the 2010 season kicks off in the coming weeks, as the team prepares to hold their annual Black and Gold game. The intrasquad matchup will take place this Saturday, Feb. 6, indoors at the Devine Pavilion. Admission to the game is free and concessions will be available for purchase.
Coming off a 50-win season that was capped by a Women’s College World Series berth in 2009, the Tigers enter the season with a No. 9 ranking according to both the USA Today/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) and the ESPN.com/USA Softball preseason Top 25 polls. Missouri returns 15 players from last season’s squad.
Following this weekend’s Black and Gold game, the Tigers will head to Tuscaloosa, Ala. Feb. 13-14 for a three game series against the No. 2 Crimson Tide. The next week, Mizzou will travel west for another three game meeting, this time with the No. 4/6 Arizona Wildcats. From Feb. 26-28, Mizzou will battle five teams at the Leadoff Classic, held in Columbus, Ga. Mizzou’s opponents at the two-day tournament include No. 3/4 Michigan, No. 20/25 Massachusetts and No. 23/24 Louisiana-Lafayette.
After a brief trip to Edwardsville, Ill., for a double-header with SIU-Edwardsville, the Tigers will finally open the home portion of their schedule, hosting three tournaments in the month of March.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament will bring instate opponents Saint Louis, SEMO, Missouri State and UMKC to University Field for three days of competition from March 5-7. The following week, March 12-14, will see New Mexico, Bradley, San Diego State, Illinois and Illinois State join the Tigers for the Tiger Invitational. A mid-week double-header with Wichita State will serve as a prelude to the third and final regular season tournament for Missouri, as Northern Colorado, Ball State, Eastern Michigan and No. 15/17 Northwestern get set to compete in the Demarini Invitational from March 19-20.
