When Jeannine Bohn was named to the Greater Cincinnati All-Century Team in the year 2000 at the age of 63, one might have expected that honor would have been the exclamation point to wrap up her amazing career.  But for Jeannine, it was just another milestone along the way.  Since that time, she has shined on the Senior softball circuit with national powerhouses like the Michigan Miracles, Ohio Cardinals, the Sportaculars (Canada), the Great Lakers, and the Silver Buckeyes – just to name a few.  Her teams have won senior titles in USSSA, LVSSA, and SSWC, and medaled in the Huntsman World Games, SPA, and Senior Olympics.  And Jeannine has earned numerous individual honors, including All-World, All-American, Best Defensive Player, and Most Valuable Player.  Primarily a shortstop during her sixty-year career and known as a solid contact hitter, Jeannine boasts a lifetime batting average of .638.  She says that her greatest thrills in softball include pitching a no-hitter in fastpitch in 1962, being involved in a tournament winning 8-2 double play, completing a triple play in the Huntsman World Senior Games and winning a gold medal, and hitting for the cycle.
