Where Are They Now: Stacey Nuveman

Who is she? Stacey Nuveman-Deniz, a former Olympian, NCAA record holder, and the top catcher in the game in recent memory.

What is she known for? Hope you've got some time, 'cause this list is going to be lengthy. Nuveman was the starting catcher for Team USA in the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Olympic games, and took home two gold medals and a silver for her efforts. As the catcher, she was responsible for game calling and she was/is widely regarded as the best of the best in that area. At the collegiate level, Nuveman's name is found in several places in the NCAA record book - she's the all-time leader in home runs (90) and slugging percentage (.945%). I did not know, until I did some research, that she also holds at least 5 Pac-12 conference records.

You might not know... that Stacey played one season in the NPF and was named to the All-Star team that year.

What's she up to now? Nuveman-Deniz is in her fifth season as an assistant at San Diego State. This will be her third season in the position of assistant head coach. She serves as the team's recruiting coordinator and hitting instructor. (SDSU is 8-7 on the season, with five of those losses coming to Top 25 teams.)

Contact information: Stacey can be reached on Twitter @StaceyNuveman or through her website's contact page. I highly suggest you take a moment to drop her a line and let one of the greatest players of all-time know that she's still remembered!
