Diana Pinkley joins the SLIAC Hall of Fame after an outstanding softball collegiate career at Fontbonne University. Pinkley was a member of the inaugural Fontbonne softball team, playing from 1994-97, and was the starting pitcher for the program’s first ever game. Pinkley would go on to earn First Team All-Conference honors all four years.
She still holds school records for innings pitched, starts, and wins as well as single season records for earned-run average and complete games. Her 0.85 earned-run average in the 1995 season ranked her fifth nationally and that same season guided the Griffins to a SLIAC Conference Championship. She wrapped up her career with 55 wins including 70 complete games and an earned-run average of 1.26. Pinkley was also a member of two women’s Class A ASA National Championships. She was inducted into the Fontbonne Hall of Fame in 2003.
