Softball's Frame, Rubin Earn Scholarships To Morgan State
Sophomore third baseman/pitcher Amber Frame and freshman shortstop Tiffany Rubin, members of this year's Pasadena City College softball team, will continue as teammates at their next stop--NCAA Division I Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland.
The pair were offered athletic scholarships from Morgan State head coach Jeff Bozier. The Lady Bears play in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).
Frame was an All-South Coast Conference Second Team utility player selection this past season. A two-year starter, Frame batted .337 with a team-highs in RBI (18), doubles (nine), and on-base percentage (.472). Her 26 walks drawn led the conference. As a freshman in 2009, Frame led the Lancers in hitting (.343) and was the team's pitching ace with a 13-9 record and 3.25 ERA. Frame is from Baldwin Park High.
Rubin was one of the top defensive shortstops in the state with a .957 fielding percentage, leading PCC in fielding assists with 99. She batted .303 and led the Lancers in triples with two. Rubin played her prep ball at Alhambra's Mark Keppel High.
The two players were guided here at PCC by Elaine Martinez, who recently left the college after four seasons as the Lancers' head coach.
