LEGENDARY CHAPARRAL SOFTBALL COACH JEFF OSCARSON ELECTED TO 2018
ARIZONA SPORTS HALL OF FAME CLASS
PHOENIX—Longtime Chaparral High School softball coach Jeff Oscarson has been elected to the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame by a public vote, the Arizona Sports and Entertainment Commission (ASEC) announced Monday.
Oscarson’s Firebirds won five state titles during his 22-year tenure, which he finished in 2003 with an overall 450-122-3 record.
“This is an incredible honor and a dream come true,” Oscarson said. “I’m grateful to my players and assistant coaches for all their hard work in building and maintaining a championship program.”
The rest of the 2018 Arizona Sports Hall of Fame, selected by a vote of trustees, will be announced at a later date. The class will be honored during the Crest Insurance Group Arizona Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 1 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
The Arizona Sports Hall of Fame honors athletes, coaches, administrators and others who have made significant contributions to Arizona sports. To be eligible for the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame, an individual must meet one of three criteria:
A native of Arizona;
Immediately recognized as an Arizonan;
Have made at least two significant contributions to the athletics community in Arizona.
Oscarson played baseball at Saguaro High School and was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1970. He decided not to sign and instead attended Mesa Community College, where he played on back-to-back national champions. Oscarson played for Arizona State in 1973 and 1974.
Oscarson also served as a teacher and athletics director and played a pivotal role in establishing athletics programs at Scottsdale Unified School District middle schools, enabling children to participate on organized sports teams.
