Legendary United States softball player Jennie Finch joined the list of big-time athletes to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue back in 2005.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has a long history of athletes posing for the magazine.
Finch joined the list in 2005. The 40-year-old former softball star did a cool shoot for the magazine during the peak of her playing days.
Finch is one of the best softball players in the history of the game. She played at Arizona from 1999-2002, where she won a national championship in 2001. Finch went on to star for the United States national team.
She won a gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and a silver medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics.
