On the softball diamond, Jennie Finch is one of the fiercest competitors you'll ever find. Off the field, she is just a regular ol' mom who happens to be able to throw a 71 mile per hour riseball. Jennie and her husband Casey Daigle have a two-year-old son named Ace. It so happens that her husband also has a good arm - he is a pitcher for the Minnesota Twins. Do we see a future Pedro Martinez in Ace?

When we say that Ann Iverson is basketball star Allen Iverson's biggest fan, we mean it! Ever since Allen was a kid, his mother attended every game from high school to college to the NBA.
