Who is she? Annie Kinsey, a former infielder for the Penn Quakers.
What is she known for? Kinsey (2005-08) was named to the first-team all-Ivy League in each of her four seasons as a Quaker. She was named the conference Player of the Year in 2007 by a unanimous vote and earned Easton all-American honors the same year. Kinsey was twice named to the all-Mid-Atlantic region squad in each of her latter two seasons.
Here’s something interesting… Upon receiving the conference’s Player of the Year award in 2007, Kinsey became one of just two players in Penn program history to win the award. At the present time, she is one of just three Quakers to be named the Player of the Year in the conference’s thirty-two year softball history.
Quotable quote: “The discipline that softball gave me has been invaluable. Softball is tough. Work is tough. Life is tough. There is no giving up. There is no ‘I can’t do this’ or ‘I won’t do this.’ You have a job to do, and you get it done. It is about attitude.”
What’s she up to now? After graduating from Penn, Annie worked as a foster care caseworker and educational coordinator for an organization in New York. She graduated from law school in California in 2014 and has since worked as an attorney, specializing in family law, estate planning, and general civil litigation.
