Bertagnolli inducted in hall of fame

California University head softball coach Rick Bertagnolli was inducted into the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame Friday night as part of the organization’s annual convention.


Bertagnolli has compiled a 967-277 overall record (.777) in 30 years as a head coach, including the last 20 seasons at Cal. The all-time winningest coach in all of school history, he has led the Vulcans to a 705-227 (.756) record and claimed the school’s first-ever National Championships in 1997 and 1998.


Bertagnolli guided Cal’s program to 18 berths in the NCAA Tournament (1994-04, 2006, 2008-13) and five appearances at the NCAA Championships (1994, 1996-99). The Vulcans are the last team, and fourth overall, to repeat as the NCAA Division II National Champion.


Bertagnolli has led the Vulcans to 15 PSAC West regular-season titles (1994-03, 2009-13) and five PSAC Tournament championships (1996-00), plus six runner-up finishes at the league tournament (1994-95, 2002, 2004, 2010, 2013).
