Big 12 Tournament: We are the Champions !!!
The Tigers fought a back-and forth battle against the Oklahoma Sooners at Bricktown this afternoon, coming away with an 8-7 victory.
Eric Garcia was named the MVP of the 2012 Big 12 Tournament. The All-Tournament team included SS Garcia, OF Dane Opel, OF Blake Brown and Pitcher Jeff Emens.
The win gives the Baseball Tigers their first ever Big 12 Championship in their final season before leaving for the SEC.
The win also awards the Tigers an automatic berth in the NCAA Regionals. The at-large teams, top-eight national seeds, first-round regional pairings and site assignments will be announced at noon ET, Monday, May 28. The one-hour program will be shown live on ESPNU.
Mizzou Baseball will almost certainly host a public watch party somewhere on Monday. Watch mutigers.com or @MUTigerBaseball on Twitter for details.
