Q.Jennie, please clear this up for me: what's the difference between softball and baseball?
Basically softball is a bigger ball and we play with smaller dimensions. We pitch underhand while baseball pitchers throw over hand.
Q.Did you ever dream you'd make it to the Olympics? It must've been surreal for you!
Wearing USA across my chest was something I dreamt about for a long long time! Its the biggest stage in sport. A true honor!
Q.At what point did you feel you had really made it as a female baseball star?
There was a moment when I was in college and was asked to pose with Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling for a photo that I just couldn’t believe it was happening. But I have to say that standing alongside my idols like Lisa Fernandez on the gold medal podium in the 2004 Olympics, that was a huge moment for me.
Q.You became somewhat of an athletic sex symbol as you rose to softball stardom. Flattering or not?
For me it was always about being the best...
