STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford native Ali Hirsch, a former softball star at the University of Connecticut, will be one of three former Huskies entering the the Fairfield County Sports Hall of Fame University of Connecticut wing on Thursday.
The UConn wing is housed at the UConn Stamford Campus. Hirsch will be joined by Mike McKay, (men's basketball, Bridgeport) and Jim Penders (baseball, Stratford).
Hirsch played four seasons with the Huskies from 1996-99. She was a standout infielder, primarily as a second baseman. The Stamford High graduate was an All-Big East and All-ECAC selection as a senior. Hirsch is in the UConn career record book in several different categories including sixth in triples (13), ninth in singles (139), ninth in assists (314) and 12th in runs scored (96).
The UConn wing of the Hall of Fame was started in 2007.
