Nebraska legendary pitcher Peaches James will be one of seven individuals inducted into the Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame later this fall.
James, a Nebraska native, enjoyed one of the finest careers in Husker softball history. Playing for the Huskers from 2001-2004, James earned a nomination to the all-Big 12 conference first team in each of her four seasons in Lincoln.
During her career, James led the Huskers to 149 victories, earning ninety-eight of them for her own personal record. She ended her career with a 1.19 ERA and 945 strikeouts. Her forty-four career shutouts remain a school record.
James’ quartet of all-conference awards made her the first player in the history of the Big 12 conference, where her Huskers played at that time, to be named to the first team in each of her four seasons of her career.
Following her collegiate career, James went on to have a four-year career in National Pro Fastpitch.
Joining James in the Class of 2018 are Darin Erstad (baseball); Sarah Pavan (volleyball); Tom Schlesinger (gymnastics); Mike Rozier (football); and former football coaches Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne.
The group will be inducted in a ceremony in September.
