Jessica Sallinger to be Inducted Into Ramblin' Wreck Hall of Fame

Former Georgia Tech all-American and program great Jessica Sallinger Cole will headline the 2015 class deemed worthy of induction into the Ramblin' Wreck Hall of Fame.

Cole will be one of nine former athletes and support staff that will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in a ceremony on October 16th. The nonet will also be honored on the field during the Georgia Tech/Pitt football game in October 17th.

Cole pitched from 2002-2005, gathering two all-American honors; three all-ACC awards; and the title of Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Year in her senior campaign.

Arguably the very best to put on a Yellow Jackets uniform, Cole continues to hold possession of first all-time in an incredible ten school records. Among other categories, she holds the top mark in ERA (1.12); shutouts (52); and wins in a season (31).

After graduating with the conference's all-time lead in career wins and strikeouts, Cole continues to hold 2nd place in both categories, now behind only Virginia Tech's Angela Tincher.

Not just a pitcher, Cole boasts forty-six home runs to her credit as an offensive player.

Cole continued her playing career in the pros, spending several seasons in the NPF with the Chicago Bandits and Philadelphia Force.

Cole is only the second Georgia Tech softball player to be inducted into the school's Hall of Fame, following Laura Williams Hartman in 2007.
