Earleywine said Finucane had significant swelling and ended up with a possible hairline fracture in her sinus cavity, but she's OK. The injury, which happened during a televised game, has prompted conversation at the Women's College World Series about whether infielders should wear facemasks. Earleywine said Finucane will wear a facemask when she plays this summer, and he'll let her decide if she wants to use it next season.

"For me, I'm OK with whatever the player thinks is in their best interest," Earleywine said. "If they feel safer with a mask on, I think they should be allowed to wear it. If they don't feel comfortable with it on and are willing to take the risk, I think you should be able to take that risk."

The Tigers had a chance to salvage the season at the SEC Tournament in Hoover, Ala. In the double-elimination bracket, the Tigers held a 6-2 lead over SEC East champion Vanderbilt. The Commodores rallied to tie the game in the ninth and won with a walk-off home run just over the reach of Ring at the center-field fence.

The Tigers were close to earning an at-large bid to a regional, missing by two spots, Dave Heeke, the NCAA Division I baseball committee chairman, said on ESPNU’s selection show. Though Missouri’s SEC résumé was deemed worthy, the Tigers were hurt by a 4-7 midweek record, a 3-12 finish to the regular season and an RPI of 54. With bid stealers Texas and Michigan winning their respective conferences’ automatic bids, the Tigers were on the outside looking in. [...]

"We had a really talented recruiting class this year. Our freshman class was phenomenal," Jackson said. "Our class next year is going to be quality. You combo those with our sophomore class this year, those guys will be juniors next year, and some of the guys we’ll get back. I think, in some people’s minds going into next year, I won’t be surprised if some people have us as an Omaha sleeper. We’ve got a lot of talent."
