This week we are bringing you an interview with Fresno State Head softball Coach Margie Wright. In 2000 was she recorded the most wins in NCAA Division I history. She was in the first Olympics as a pitcher/catcher coach. She had the privilege of coaching softball and playing softball against some of the greats like Laura Berg, Dot Richardson, and many others. She attributes her success to the athletes she has coached.

Coach Wright first started playing fastpitch 10 years of age. She made the boys baseball team to begin with, then at the first game she was informed that girls were not allowed to play with the boys. She was crushed. So, her dad started a team so she could play.

Margie got into coaching in 1974. She was hired as a high school coach. There were no school teams even though Title IX had passed. She started and coached 5 sports and taught a full load. She realized that coaching was truly her passion. Then to Eastern Illinois to coach volleyball.

“Don't get wrapped up in the scholarship and exposure. We have lost the love of the game” stated this to encourage young girls to truly love the game of softball.
