COLUMBIA, Mo. (April 29, 2022) -- As spring arrives and flowers begin to bloom, the Mizzou Tiger Baseball and Softball teams gear up for competition. The community that the Tigers call home is also ready to welcome visitors to enjoy sporting events and other activities that take you outside to enjoy the spring weather.
Both Taylor Stadium at Simmons Field (Baseball) and the Mizzou Softball Stadium are located just minutes from Mizzou's main campus, are outstanding places to take in a game and give visitors easy access to explore the rest of Columbia during their visit.
Make sure to schedule some time to take a stroll through the University of Missouri's beautiful and historic campus.
