The National Pro Fastpitch announced a new Television deal with CBS Sports Network, which will allow Jaguar fans and fans of other stars from the State of Alabama to watch games in the comfort of their home.

Campbell has pitched 30 1/3 innings, the third-most in the circle for the Akron Racers as the team has a 11-13 record overall and is currently third in the four-team league through the first half of the season. The pitchers with more innings than her are former collegiate stars Rachele Fico (LSU) and Alison Owen (Mississippi State).

After suffering a pair of losses in her first three appearances, both to the same team in the Chicago Bandits, she finally earned her first professional victory on June 7 against the Bandits as well.

The Racers will return to action on July 11 when they host the USSSA Pride at 6:05pm. Though it will not be aired, CBS Sports Network will televise an NPF game on Monday and Tuesdays for the next five week, a nightly game August 11-15, a postseason Pool-Play game on August 20 and the league championship series on August 22-23.
