As the most accomplished pitcher in the NCAA, NPF and Olympics, Cat Osterman doesn't need an introduction with statistics that are so impressive you would have a hard time making them up. What is most amazing is how hard she worked growing up to become the most successful pitcher in the history of the sport. In her early years, Cat's dad was a major influence in her work ethic taking her out on the driveway and having her pitch to him until it got so dark he couldn't see the ball. Now as a coach and a player, Cat is the perfect advocate for the sport training players just as her coaches did throughout her career.
