Mizzou players return to help Joplin Habitat (
The University of Missouri Baseball and Softball teams visited Joplin today in the school's fourth visit as part of the Habitat for Humanity's "Governor's Joplin Challenge." Assistant Baseball Coach Dan Pietroburgo tells News Talk KZRG the May 2011 tornado hits close to home for at least one member of the team.

"One of our incoming players, Brecken Williams, is from Webb City. So, not too far away, so they felt it a little bit. Everyone's kind of rallied around this, and we're just excited to be here to help any way we can."

The players painted eight homes that have been built in the tornado zone by fellow Tigers, as well as members of the St. Louis Rams and Kansas Chiefs.
