09-16-2011: Alex Morgan threw out the first pitch at the Kansas City Royals game against the Chicago White Sox last night. Check the photo.
Alex Morgan's boyfriend Servando Carrasco plays for the Seattle Sounders of the MLS, while she plays for both Team USA and the Western New York Flash. The two have been dating since their time attending Cal together. Though they spent those four years almost inseperable, Alex Morgan and Servando Carrasco now see each other far less often, thanks to a pair of competing grueling schedules. With Morgan playing in the Women's World Cup last summer and the Olympics this summer, and Carrasco playing for Sounders FC - there isn't a ton of time left over. The two manage to make it work despite their hectic schedules.
In a lengthy article that profiled the couple on the Sounders home page, Servando admitted he probably wouldn't be paying attention to the US Women if not for Alex:
We're all extremely proud of her. To be playing in the World Cup when you're 21 years old is an amazing accomplishment. Now that my girlfriend is playing in the World Cup, I'll be watching. Whether it's 5 o'clock in the morning or any other time.
