Check out this great interview of Jennie Finch. She covers topics from her career at Arizona (With some nifty highlights.) to her battle to get softball back into the Olympics.
I like the interview overall, but I disagree with her assertion that there was no reason for the Olympic committee to remove softball. The reason that jumps out is simply that the American women were too dominant. Not 'fair', but there you go. That's what you get when you deal with an Olympic committee. Anyone remember the 1972 Olympic Basketball Championship game?
