OKLAHOMA CITY - All-time softball great Lisa Fernandez was inducted into the ASA/USA Softball National Hall of Fame on Sunday. Fernandez becomes the fifth Bruin to be inducted into the ASA Hall of Fame.

Entering her 16th season as an assistant coach with the UCLA softball team in 2014, Fernandez is arguably the greatest pitcher the game has ever seen. A three-time winner of the Honda Award, bestowed for the season's top softball athlete, she became the first softball player to win the prestigious Honda-Broderick Cup in 1993, given to the most outstanding collegiate female athlete in all sports. A four-time, first-team All-American, Fernandez led the Bruins to two national championships (1990 & 1992) and two runner-up finishes (1991 & 1993). She was also All-Region and All-Pac-10 first-team each season and Pac-10 Player of the Year her final three years.

With a miniscule 0.22 earned run average, Fernandez went 93-7 with 784 strikeouts. Her ERA ranks second in NCAA history and her 74 shutouts are tops at UCLA and ninth in the NCAA annals. In her junior and senior seasons, Fernandez had the lowest ERA in the nation (0.14 in 1992, 0.25 in 1993), sporting a perfect 29-0 mark in '92. She tossed 11 career no-hitters, including a pair in the 1993 College World Series, along with two perfect games. She ranks second in UCLA history in ERA and fourth in wins and shutouts.

Fernandez was just as powerful at the plate, batting .382 with 15 home runs and 128 runs batted in. She hit .401 in her junior season, but eclipsed that mark by more than 100 points in her senior campaign, batting an NCAA-best .510 with 11 homers and 45 RBI. Fernandez ranks in the UCLA Top 10 in numerous offensive categories, including sixth in average and fourth in hits.

Fernandez is also a three-time Olympic Gold medalist, helping Team USA to top honors in 1996, 2000 and 2004, while also serving as an alternate for the 2008 silver medal-winning team.

Fernandez joins fellow Bruins Sharron Backus (1985), Gina Vecchione (1997), Sheila Cornell (2006) and Dot Richardson (2006) in the ASA/USA Softball Hall of Fame.
