About two weeks ago, the Ohio softball community lost a true friend in Stefanie Spielman. Stefanie (whose husband is a former Ohio State University and Buffalo Bills linebacker) battled breast cancer for twelve years.
Each fall, the Ohio State University softball team hosts the Ohio Collegiate Charity Classic that benefits the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at the James Cancer Hospital.
The Oberlin College softball team has participated in the Charity Classic for two years; it will continue to honor Stefanie and her valiant fight against breast cancer. According to Linda Kalafatis, Head Softball Coach at Ohio State, this event was one of Stefanie’s favorites.
Our hearts go out to Stefanie's family and all those affected by breast cancer.
