Mizzou Links, 5-16-14: Softball regionals, rookies of the year, and Dale Hansen

New, 783 comments

Mizzou Softball's postseason path begins today against Bradley, Laurence Bowers wins Isreal's rookie of the year, Dale Hansen is still awesome, and Mizzou Men's Golf is in great shape after one round of the NCAA Regionals. And Jon Hamm's great at everything. EVERYTHING.
