AUSTIN, Texas — Former Longhorn star Cat Osterman has continued her comeback, now picked as a player for the 2019 USA National Team.
"It was an absolute honor to wear Red, White & Blue again this week, and its an even more of an honor to know I have the opportunity to join 17 other amazing athletes in wearing the best 3 letters across our chests this summer," said Osterman.
The two-time U.S. Olympic medalist was one of 18 softball players picked to play on the National Team. Osterman "retired" from playing softball after the 2015 pro season, concentrating on being an assistant coach at Texas State in San Marcos.
Cat Osterman is the only former Longhorn on the roster. Other athletes are from Florida, UCLA, California, Oklahoma, Alabama, Arizona, LSU, Oregon, Tennessee, and Washington.
Osterman has won many honors as a softball player. Her awards include, three-time USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year, four-time National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-American and two-time ESPY Award winner for Best Female College Athlete. She was 136-25 at Texas and then won four National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) titles with Rockford and USSSA Pride.
