Mizzou softball and baseball fulfill postseason ban

The Mizzou postseason ban is officially over. The MU baseball and softball teams' have served their punishments in full, according to the NCAA.

The baseball and softball seasons' were cut short in the spring due to COVID-19, so there was no postseason for any team. However, the NCAA has ruled MU has fulfilled its punishment and will be eligible to compete in the postseason again starting in 2021.

On Jan. 31, 2019, the NCAA originally announced the sanctions against MU, which included a postseason ban for the Mizzou football, baseball and softball teams. The football team was unable to play in a bowl game after the 2019 season due to the ban. This all came after an investigation into a former tutor who completed classwork for 12 student-athletes.

Mizzou appealed the sanctions, but the NCAA announced its decision to uphold them this past November.
