August 16, 2015, Osterman and the USSSA Pride were defeated 1-0 in the NPF final, and the 32-year-old was left to weep as her team’s season and her illustrious 21-year playing career came to a close. “I actually started crying because it finally set in that I would never step foot on the field as a player again.” Oysterman said. Following a superb pitching performance in which she gave up just one unearned run on four hits with six strikeouts. “I feel that I pitched as well as I could have, but it really just wasn’t in the cards for us to win.”
Despite this defeat, this season was a fine one for the NPF’s 2014 Pitcher of the Year. She finished 15-4 for the regular season champions, with a 1.21 ERA and 183 strikeouts in 121.2 innings of work. In eight seasons in the NPF—two with the now defunct Rockford Thunder and six with the Pride. Osterman captured four league titles, three Pitcher of the Year awards and was an All-NPF selection six times.
