Description 2013 Gale Dean Andaluz Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Gale Dean Andaluz of Carlmont High School who was inducted into the Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame on June 11, 2013. Plaque includes image of Andaluz and a brief biography: "A softball pioneer in many respects, she helped to set the lofty pitching standards that have become a Carlmont hallmark through the decades. After her prep career ended, she received the first softball scholarship to San Jose State University. She pitched there from 1986 through 1989. In the process, she established a number of career records. She is still number one on the Spartans' all-time complete-games list, with a total of 94. She is among the top five in fewest walks permitted, wins, appearances, earned run average, shutouts, innings pitched and games started. She is also in the top 10 in strikeouts." Plaque and induction was sponsored by The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau in cooperation with San Mateo County Event Center and Media Sponsor The San Mateo County Times. Silver-colored plaque is mounted under acrylic onto a laminated wooden board by four decorative brass-colored screws and washers. Color image of Andaluz is in the upper right hand corner and Hall of Fame logo is in the upper left corner.
