Finch was born on September 3rd, 1980, in La Mirada, California. She began playing softball at a very age, picking up a bat at age five and she started pitching at eight, with her father serving as her first pitching coach. Finch worked as a bat girl for the UCLA Bruins baseball team as well when she was young.

She saw much success in high school, lettering all four years in softball and twice in volleyball and basketball. Following high school, Finch took her talents to the University of Arizona, where her career really took off.

At the University of Arizona, Finch really came into her own not just as a pitcher, but as a hitter as well. During her career as a Wildcat, Finch would smash various school records that she continues to hold today. She won 51 consecutive games that she pitched in, is the program’s career leader in strikeouts, shutouts, innings pitched, and is also tied for no-hitters.

Finch helped the Wildcats make the College World Series three years straight and won a national championship in 2001. The University of Arizona has retired Finch’s number as a tribute to her impressive statistics.

Her success here led Finch to her next big venture in her career.

Finch went on to play for the United States in both the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Much like her career at Arizona, Finch helped her team see much success when she played.

She had a 2-0 record in the 2004 Olympics, striking out 13 batters in eight innings pitched. The United States went on to win the Gold Medal. She followed up this performance with another solid showing in 2008, but the United States would lose to Japan in the Gold Medal game. The International Olympic Committee disbanded Softball, along with Baseball, as an Olympic sport following 2008. However, it will make its return in 2020.


Finch also played in the National Fast Pitch Softball League, pitching for the Chicago Bandits. She also broke barriers when she became the first woman to coach a professional baseball team, leading the Bridgeport Bluefish of the Atlantic League for one game.

In 2018, Finch will appear on Dancing With The Stars, looking to add another impressive talent to her resume.
