Softball to retire Cat Osterman’s jersey number on March 25

AUSTIN, Texas – Legendary Longhorns pitcher Cat Osterman will have her No. 8 jersey officially retired on March 25 as part of ceremonies surrounding Texas' mid-week home contest against UT Arlington at Red & Charline McCombs Field.

In the process, Osterman will become the first UT softball player and third Texas female student-athlete to have her jersey retired. That number includes recent Longhorns women's basketball recipients Clarissa Davis (March 8) and Kamie Ethridge (Sept. 2019).

"A three-time National Player of the Year, Cat Osterman was as dominant of a college athlete as you will ever see," Texas Vice President and Director of Athletics Chris Del Conte said.
