April 8, 2003

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - University of Oregon softball assistant coach Mike White and four-time collegiate All-American Stacey Nuveman were named as the 2002 Amateur Softball Association Players of the Year, the ASA announced.

'It's a great honor, especially with all of the other great players,' White said. 'It's something that I love doing so to be honored this way is a great feeling.'

White, in his first season as an assistant at Oregon, led his club team - The Frontier Players Casino - to the ASA Men's Major Fast Pitch National Championship for the third consecutive year.

On the international level, White led the USA Men's Team to its first gold medal since 1985 at the 2002 Pan Am Qualifier in Guatemala City, Guatemala. The USA earned the top seed for the 2003 Pan Am Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic after winning the gold medal. White was a perfect 5-0, striking out 25 batters in 26 innings pitched.
