In college, Finch was a three-time All-American pitcher and first-baseman. She was one of the top three finalists for the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year, as well as Pac-10 Pitcher of the Year for two years. She was also Honda Awards’ Player of the Year and her jersey number, 27, was retired by the University of Arizona in 2003.
Finch also made a name for herself in the international softball scene, earning gold medals at the 1998 Junior Superball along with the USA Softball team and at the 2001 and 2003 Pan Am Qualifier with the USA Blue Team, and a silver at the 1999 Junior Women’s World Championships.
Following her brilliant softball career in high school and college, Finch continued earning accolades in her professional career. She was a member of the 2004 Olympic Gold Medal Softball Team. Her 2-0 win/lose record included striking out 13 batters in eight innings while giving up only one hit, one walk, and no runs at all.
