NFCA article on Fischer's induction



A 2008 NFCA Hall of Fame inductee, Sandy Fischer notched 900 victories in her 23 seasons as the head coach at Oklahoma State (1978-2001). Under her guidance, OSU advanced to the Women’s College World Series six times, including four top-three finishes, while winning eight regional championships and nine Big 8 titles.

Fischer earned the 1988 NSCA (now NFCA) national coach of the year award after winning the first of her four regional accolades, and she was named Big 8 coach of the year an additional four times after coaching two Olympians (Michele Smith and Melanie Roche), 26 all-Americans, 60 all-conference players and 49 all-academic standouts.

After leaving Oklahoma State, Fischer coached for the Professional Fastpitch Extreme Tour and worked with Kirk Walker, Oregon State, in developing the Tee Stacker softball training product. In addition, Fischer is the founder of Gametime Training Tools.

Softball has been a way of life for the Illinois native since her youth. As the starting pitcher for Western Illinois, she led her team to the college national championships in 1972 (organized by the NAGWS and the ASA), and in 1973 and 1975 (organized by the AIAW). She also played in the Women's Professional Softball League from 1976-1979 with the championship Connecticut Falcons team.

A charter member of the NFCA, Fischer served the association on numerous committees throughout her career.
