Meet the Arizona Wildcats
Kale Morton is left handed pitcher for the Arizona Wildcats. Morton has a slender build and is continuously working on strengthening his delivery. Morton has a tight curve ball spin, which surely played a part in his 76 strikeouts his senior season at Glendora High School in California. In 3 years of high school play, Morton posted a 16-2 record in 32 appearances. Morton has just begun to debut for the Wild Cats and will look to earn a bigger role with the team in the games to come.
