Let's Celebrate Jennie Finch's Birthday By Watching Her Break Scientific Equipment

Posted By on Mon, Sep 3, 2012 at 3:30 PM

University of Arizona softball great Jennie Finch turns 32 today, 10 years removed from setting an NCAA record with 60 consecutive wins. Since leaving the UA, Finch has won two Olympic medals in softball, including a gold in the 2004 Athens games, played pro fast-pitch softball, unsuccessfully advocated for the return of softball to the Olympic Games, married current minor-league pitcher and former Tucson Sidewinder Casey Daigle and become the mother of two children (with a third on the way).

With all of that in mind, let's watch her throw a fastball that destroys a piece of technology made specifically to test the force of things hitting it really, really hard.

Happy birthday, Jennie.
