Los Angeles, CA – The California Commotion has signed 2019 NFCA All-American Morgan Howe after a standout performance at the open tryout in February.
Howe (Powys, Calif), played collegiately for Trisha Ford at Fresno State and Arizona State.
At Fresno State, Howe was an All-Mountain West First Team honoree her sophomore year before transferring to ASU. As a Sun Devil, she was named All-Pac 12 twice.
“For the little girl that grew up in Southern California not knowing that in a short 15 years that she’d have the opportunity to play professional softball, this is nothing short of a dream come true,” said Howe. “For the 22-year-old who understands how deep the love for the game can run, I am so humbled by this opportunity to inspire the young girls and young women who are learning to love and learning how incredible this sport is.”
“Morgan is a talented outfielder. Her love for the game is contagious. She is a local California player that will compliment our roster.” Deb Hartwig, General Manager.
Howe is currently a graduate student manager at Florida and was named to the 2020 Canadian National Team Selection Pool.
On March 30, the Commotion will participate in its first NPF College Draft, where the team will attempt to complement the existing roster with drafted college rookies. As the league’s newest franchise, the Commotion will not only make the first pick of the 2020 Draft, but will also make the first pick in all five Draft rounds.”
The Commotion will open their season on April 17th against the Canadian Wild of Southern Illinois at Fresno State University.
