Gary Young appointed Commissioner for South Dakota ASA
The Amateur Softball Association, a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization, and USA Softball announced today that Gary Young, of Watertown, has been appointed the commissioner for the South Dakota ASA. Young takes over following the retirement of long-time SD ASA Commissioner Bill Maher, who served as commissioner for 42 years.
Young got started with ASA/USA Softball in 1974 as a men’s fast pitch player, and started umpiring the following year. In 1979, Young was appointed the Northeast South Dakota Area fast pitch commissioner before becoming the Umpire-in-Chief for Northeast South Dakota in 1980.
“What an honor to be chosen as the next commissioner of South Dakota ASA,” said Young. “In the 40 years I have been involved, I have seen all aspects of the game and I know what a tremendous organization ASA/USA Softball is because of people like Bill Maher, who is retiring. Just as important are all the sponsors, volunteers, players, umpires and media. I am looking forward to working with those in South Dakota as well as fellow commissioners in ASA and the National Office staff to keep SD ASA successful.”
Young has served on the SD ASA hearing board since 1986 and has also held a seat on the SD ASA scholarship committee. He also helped implement the website for the SD ASA.
Young worked for Hubbard Milling in Watertown for almost 20 years before starting his own screenprinting company in 1990. He currently is the owner of Primetime Sports Embroidery & Screen Printing, which specializes in corporate and school spirit wear.
