I was poking around for stuff on the NPF and found this on Monica Abbott's Wiki page:


"In May 2016, the Scrap Yard Dawgs, a National Pro Fastpitch team, signed Abbott to a six-year contract, believed to be worth $1 million; the contract is believed to be the most lucrative ever paid by an individual American professional franchise to an active female athlete in any team sport"


She was 30 when she signed that contract and that league only has 6 teams. They must have found an owner with some bucks and they don't have a salary cap.

yeah, it's a big step forward to seeing the NPF looking secure. That's $1 million over 6 years. The NPF has a ton of sponsors(more than the WNBA), plus is appears some expansion teams are coming in for 2017. They also have a TV deal with CBS Sports.
