Connie Morgan was mentioned dozens of times in the black press and the Philadelphia Tribune, her hometown paper, paid special attention to her year in the Negro Leagues. The first Tribune article on Morgan was titled "Hometown Miss to Replace Toni Stone at Second Base" and noted that she "graduated from John Bartram High in Philadelphia, and is currently attending William Penn Business School." On July 24, 1954, the Tribune noted Morgan's first game in Philadelphia (the Clowns swept a doubleheader against the Monarchs at Connie Mack Stadium) and ran a picture of Morgan with some of her William Penn Business Institute classmates. After her first and only season in the Negro Leagues, the Norfolk Journal and Guide reported that Morgan "switched from bats to books" and resumed her accounting courses at William Penn.
