Missouri senior outfielder Emily Crane was selected Wednesday as a first-team All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association, which also chose Tigers senior shortstop for its third team.
Crane, a native of Troy, Mo., is the second first-team All-American in Mizzou softball history, joining former ace Chelsea Thomas (2011-13).
Along with Fagan, the Tigers have now had 23 players receive All-America honors in program history, including 13 during coach Ehren Earleywine’s 10-year tenure.
Crane batted .404 and led Mizzou with 15 doubles, 17 home runs, 61 RBIs and 64 runs scored.

She also added 25 stolen bases and a team-best .801 slugging percentage, which is the second-highest single-season mark in program history.
Crane ranks second all-time with a .383 career average and fourth in hits (251), doubles (50) and runs scored (186). She also owns top-10 marks for career RBIs (150), steals (83) and slugging (.591).
Rhea Taylor owns the top career batting average at .402 (2008-11).
Fagan — a native of Dunnellon, Fla., and transfer from Florida — led the Tigers with a .434 average, which is the second-highest in program history behind only Taylor’s .452 average in 2010.
She finished the season with 10 doubles, 11 home runs, 26 steals, 54 RBIs and 59 runs scored.
Fagan ranks second in Mizzou history with 204 runs scored, 272 hits and 191 RBIs. She also ranks third all-time with a .379 career average and ninth with 74 steals.
Taylor owns the career marks for runs scored (234) and hits (315), while Mary Babb has the most career RBIs (199, 1994-97).
The Tigers, who have claimed eight regional titles in Earleywine’s 10 seasons, finished the season 42-16 after getting swept last weekend in NCAA super regional play by No. 2 seed Michigan.
Oklahoma sophomore ace Paige Parker, a graduate of Truman High, also was a first-team All-American.
She was 33-3 with a 1.55 ERA for the Women’s College World Series-bound Sooners, striking out 244 in 216 1/3 innings with a .185 opponents’ batting average.
Nebraska senior Kiki Stokes, an Olathe East graduate, was a third-team selection.
She led the Cornhuskers with a .409 average, .509 on-base percentage, 74 hits, 12 doubles, three triples and 20 steals last season, adding seven home runs.
