Correct....


and very appropriately identified in the Osterman capsule as "often overlooked". Like with everything when it comes to these lists it is often times a heated debate at the top that hinges on pedigree, level of competition, politics, etc. AT NO HIT the best softball team in the world and nobody can ever diminish or take that away from her. While there can always be debate about "the Best" it is an egregious omission that she did not land at least in the top vote getters and pretty much diminishes the credibility of the voting. As #3 in all time strikeouts(2149), top 15 in wins(123 total) and top 50 in ERA(.78)(and if you consider the fact that the majority of the Top 50 in ERA played before softball exploded in the early 1990s and the game changed she would be Top 20 there as well) AT's body of work stacks up against anybody PERIOD. There is always a debate about sport and profile but, in my opinion, AT's accomplishments qualifies her for the Mount Rushmore designation of VT athletes and a much loftier mention than she was afforded amongst the all time softball greats..
