Katiyana Mauga, who completed her Arizona Wildcats career last season as the second-leading home run hitter in college softball history, hit her second professional home run Wednesday night.
Mauga was playing her third game with the Scrap Yard Dawgs of the National Pro Fastpitch League. The team, located in the Houston area, recently acquired Mauga in a trade with the Texas Charge. She hit .167 in 36 at-bats with the Charge.
Mauga ended her Arizona career with 92 home runs, tops in Pac-12 history. She became the only college player to hit at least 20 years in all four seasons of eligibility.
