Fall Ball Report: Cal State Fullerton

This Fall we’re hitting the streets in search of new information about teams around the MCLA. Next up, we’ve got a full update from Coach Morrison at Cal State Fullerton!

Editor’s note: After the success of our “Growing the Program” series last year, we knew we had to follow up with another league-wide update. So, this Fall we’re hitting the streets in search of new information about teams around the MCLA. We’re asking questions about try-outs, players to watch, team promotion, coaching changes and everything this side of the Mississippi. With that, here come our Fall Ball Reports!
