Daily Erin Andrews: Jennie Finch Retires from Softball

The sports world is about to lose one of it's all time great athletes at the end of August. NCAA National Champion, MVP, Olympic Gold Medalist, and all around badass on the diamond Jennie Finch announced earlier today, she was ready to call it a day on her storied softball career. For those of you who don't know Finch is more than just a pretty face. She is one of the all time great pitchers the game of softball has ever seen. During her sophomore season at Arizona University she won 30 straight games. She capped her undefeated streak at 60 games during her senior season. Finch also went on to become a national hero in representing the United States in World Championships and in the Olympics, where she proved to be just as dominating. Now at the age of 29, Jennie has decided it's time to call it quits and spend some time with her family and focusing on helping to spread the game she loves.
