Meet the Author

Judi Garman is one of the most successful softball coaches in NCAA history. After establishing the softball program at Cal State Fullerton in 1980, Garman collected 913 wins and only 376 losses for a winning percentage of .708 and retired as the nation's winningest coach with more than 1,100 career wins.

During Garman's career at Cal State Fullerton, the Titans participated in postseason play 18 out of 20 seasons. Her teams won or shared eight conference titles and seven regional championships. They won the NCAA championship in 1986; finished second in the Collegiate World Series in 1981, 1983, and 1985; finished third in 1982 and 1987; and fifth in 1995. While coaching at Golden West Junior College from 1975 to 1978, Judi's teams won four consecutive national titles.

She served as president of the National Softball Coaches Association (NSCA) from 1990 to 1991. In 1993, she was elected to the NSCA Hall of Fame. In 1995, she was the recipient of the Woman of Excellence in Sports award.

As a player, Garman was a Canadian all-star outfielder and member of two Canadian national championship teams. She also was a member of the Saskatoon team that represented Canada at the world championships held in Osaka, Japan, in 1970.

Now that she has retired from coaching, Garman maintains an extensive clinic-speaking schedule, spreading her softball knowledge around the world. Besides softball, she enjoys golfing, fishing, and snow skiing. She lives in Palm Springs, California and Aspen, Colorado.
