Coach Diane Ninemire Interview. Produced By Gary Leland
This is an interview with Coach Diane Ninemire the head coach for the Cal Golden Bears. She graduated from University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1980. She played basketball and softball while in college. She continued her education at Texas Women's University in Denton, Texas. Coach Ninemire has wanted to be a coach since 4th grade.
She played travel softball starting at age 10. She believes that youth should play many sports. She sees a lot of injuries of softball players that have over worked specific joints and muscles coming from playing softball all the time. She thinks they would see less injuries because you are using different joints and muscles, if softball/all athletes would play more than one sport.
Coach Ninemeire has many softball accomplishments including 1,000 wins and winning the 2002 Women's College World Series. She says that team had a mission and a purpose. She believes that the will to win is more important than talent on the field.
The moment that she will remember for the rest of her life will be during that WCWS top of the 7th against Arizona the score was tied 0-0. They had lead that inning off with a walk. Then with 2 outs proceeded to score 6 runs, to win the game.
Coach Ninemire believes that young players really have to find their true passion, work hard and be dedicated. Do your best to reach your goals.
