Jennie Finch started playing softball at the age of five – developing a talent and a love for the game so strong, that it vaulted her to being a two-time Player of the Year and three-time All-American at the University of Arizona.
Finch also won two Olympic medals – a gold and silver, and has become the face of USA softball, not just because of her vicious windup and dominant pitching performances, but also because she’s become widely known as one of the most beautiful women in all of sports.
Now, as her 30th birthday quickly approaches, Jennie Finch has decided to retire this year – and to honor Finch for her career achievements (and physical beauty), TWHS would like to provide the following mini-tribute to recognize Jennie Finch and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors, whatever they may be.
