Sooners hope Rally Baby leads to Big 12 Tournament success

The Rally Monkey. The Rally Squirrel. The Rally Mantis. All have their place in baseball history and have re-energized dugouts over the years…but is there room for one more?

The University of Oklahoma Baseball team now has their own source of good vibes.
