At the time of her induction, Leah Braatz was Arizona's only four-time first team All-American selection for softball. She completed her career in superb fashion by winning back-to-back national honors for her position at catcher-the Diamond Sports/NFCA Catcher of the Year. Leah tied former UA great and Sports Hall of Famer Laura Espinoza in 1998 for the NCAA career lead in home runs with 85. She was only the third player in NCAA history to drive in more than 100 runs in one season along with former teammates Espinoza and Jenny Dalton. On the UofA record charts, at the time of her induction Leah was number one in home runs (85) and doubles (59) for her career. Defensively, she was one of the best in the game and opponents were able to steal only 66 bases and were thrown out 27 times.
