Laura Espinoza-Watson became the first player in the history of the University of Arizona's softball program to sock 20 homers when she went deep thirty times in 1994. As a senior in '95, she set a national collegiate record by cracking 37 long balls; that mark still stood 15 years later.

Espinoza-Watson went on to play for the 1996 Colorado Silver Bullets, hitting .308 and slugging over .400. She later coached softball at Banning High School, Eastern Arizona College, Pima Community College, Loyola Marymount University and Empire High School. The 37-year-old was picked to play for the USA in the 2010 Women's Baseball World Cup.
