Description Katie May Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Plaque commemorating Katie May of Burlingame High School being inducted into Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame, sponsored by The San Mateo County/ Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, on June 13, 2012. Plaque includes image of May and a brief biography: "In the mid-1990s, she was a three-sport standout at Burlingame. But her softball prowess proved to be her greatest strength. She was a four-year starter for the Panthers as a shortstop and, after graduating, didn't miss a beat at U.C. Berkeley. Playing for the Golden Bears, she became the program's starting shortstop almost immediately. She was a smooth fixture and a fluid defensive standout at that position for four productive seasons, finishing her career with 596 assists, an all-time Cal record. Her team won 163 games and played in the College World Series twice. At the plate, she led the team with 12 doubles in 1998." Plaque is wood with an acrylic label attached to front with four screws, one in each corner. Wood has a hole in center top, as well as two grooves on back (one on the left and one on top below the hole), for mounting.
