No. 5 - Jennie Finch

Being perhaps the most renowned and beloved softball player to come out of the University of Arizona, Jennie was a starting pitcher for the Wildcats from 1999-02, where she was a big part of the Arizona team that won the 2001 Women's College World Series. 

A former Collegiate All-American, Finch was dominant at Arizona, even setting several records including winning 51 consecutive games.

Not only did she have a storied collegiate career, but she eventually went on to have a spectacular pro career in the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) Softball League and competed in the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics where she won two Olympic Medals. 

In a lot of ways, she is considered to be one of the few who are the "face" of Arizona Softball, and her accomplishments speak for themself. To me, there isn't a scenario in which Finch should not be listed in the Top 5 greatest Athletes to come from Arizona.
