Jennie Finch is one of the most successful softball pitchers in history. Finch is known for her consistent performances on the field, which earned her the nickname "The Queen of Consistency." She was a key player on the United States women's national softball team that won gold medals at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games.

Jennie Finch was born on June 3, 1980, in Torrance, California. Jennie was a natural athlete and excelled in all sports, but was especially talented in softball. She started playing softball at the age of eight and quickly developed into one of the best pitchers in the country.

By the time she was a junior in high school, she had already led her team to two state championships and decided to continue her dominance on the mound by attending the University of Arizona, where she led the Wildcats to three consecutive NCAA championships.

Taking the next step in her career, Finch helped the United States women's national team win gold medals at the Olympic Games in Athens (2004). She was the starting pitcher in all six of the team's games, and recorded a 2.33 ERA with 26 strikeouts.

Jennie's professional softball career began in 2005, when she joined the Chicago Bandits of the National Pro Fastpitch league. Jennie quickly became one of the league's most popular players, and in 2006 she was named the Most Valuable Player. In 2009, Jennie signed with the Philadelphia Force, and she played for that team until 2011.

Jennie currently plays for the Texas Charge, and she is one of the league's most dominant players. In 2014, Jennie was named the Most Valuable Player and the Defensive Player of the Year. She has also been named to the All-Star team seven times.

Finch returned to the Olympics in 2008 and helped the United States women's team win another gold medal. This time, she was the relief pitcher in two of the team's six games, and did not allow a run in six innings of work. In her career, Finch has won five gold medals and one silver medal with the United States women's national team.
