One of the most recognizable names in the sport of softball, Lisa Fernandez is a three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, having helped Team USA to victories in the 1996, 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games. In 1996, Fernandez shined in the United States’ 3-1 gold-medal victory over China, recording the final three outs to earn a save. She went 1-1 with a 0.33 ERA in softball’s inaugural appearance in the Olympics in Atlanta.

Besides all her accomplishments, Liza Fernandez is extremely proud and honored to be a Latina and a true role model and ambassador for the game of softball for current and future generations.
