Christan Dowling of Rochester, New York has unexpectedly passed away on April 13, 2021.
Christan was named the USA Softball Female Slow Pitch Athlete of the Year in 2018. She will go be remembered as the most feared women’s slow pitch batter of all time. She once played in an ASA Open Women’s National where she hit a home run her first time at bat and then was intentionally walked the next 16 at bats.
Christan has won numerous ASA and USSSA Championships at the highest level of each association.
Christan was an employee of Easton Sports since 2013. Prior to that she was a rep at Combat Sports Group.
Christan was inducted into the USSSA Hall of Fame in 2019.
As more information becomes available we will post it here.
In 2012, Christan batted in the USSSA Men’s Major World Series Home Run Derby, the first time ever a woman has hit in it. She did not let us down. See the video below.
