KC Star: Sticking together gets Missouri back to college softball's World Series
Missouri enters Women’s College World Series play with a best-ever 50-10 record, including an incredible 16-1 on neutral sites.
Rhea Taylor, Mizzou’s center fielder and leadoff hitter, notes the will of this team.
“Everybody on this team, this year, wants to win, and has the heart to,” Taylor said.
That, Minner contends, is as important as anything.
“Talent can only take you so far,” Minner said. “But when you have heart, and you have your teammates just picking you up whenever you’re down, constantly and sincerely and consistently, that’s the difference.”
