Joan Joyce is considered by many as the Greatest Female Athlete in Sports History, starring in such sports as Softball, Basketball, Volleyball, Golf, and Bowling. She will always be known as the unbeatable pitcher for the Raybestos Brakettes and the Connecticut Falcons, whose numerous career records—including an incredible 150 no-hitters and 50 perfect games—made her the best in the game. In addition to her playing career, Joan has refereed at a very high level for 34 years, coached Division 1 college golf for 18 years, and has coached sports (softball, basketball, etc) for 60 years!! Joan has been inducted into an incredible 20 Halls of Fame!!
We will continue to see great athletes in a particular sport. However, we will never see anyone like Joan Joyce again!! For many years, Joan has been a true inspiration to girls (and boys). A one-of-a kind, Multi-Dimensional athlete. So, if possible, bring your children to meet and hear from this amazing athlete.
