New State Appointments
Rick Smith and Hank Hewitt will continue their positions as State UIC and State Player Rep. Thanks to both of them for their continued help. Larry Lewis has accepted the position of State JO Commissioner. Larry and I will be working together to finish out this year since he would be taking over right in the middle of on-line registration for the JO teams. Larry has been involved in youth fast pitch and brings a hands-on knowledge to the position. He will be learning the registerasa system and establishing contacts with JO administrators and leagues throughout the state. Thanks Larry.
Have a great season.
Montana ASA/USA State Commisioner
