2818944_Lyndsey2Lyndsey Klein is one of Athletes for Hearts biggest supporters.  This foundation is “close to her heart” for a very special reason. As a young female athlete and elite fastpitch softball player, Lyndsey underwent three heart surgeries.  Despite being diagnosed with the condition tachycardia, defined as excessive rapidity in the action of the heart (a heart rate of over 135 beats per minute), Klein in her second year of college had already managed to overcome two heart surgeries and earn the starting role as UCLA’s dynamic and powerhouse second baseman.

On May 10, 1999, in the middle of her college softball career, Klein again found herself on the operating table. Just five days later on May 15, 1999, Klein was right back on the softball field. It is no wonder Klein has been tagged as having the “heart of a champion”.

Klein became an All American at UCLA and she is still the UCLA Career Leader in doubles.  She became an NCAA WCWS Champion in 1999 and was a USA Softball World Champion in 2002.  She went on to play professional softball for the NY/NJ Juggernauts and became an NPF Champion in 2004.
