Robert "Bobby" Peņa Accepts Arizona ASA/USA Softball Commissioner Position
OKLAHOMA CITY - The Amateur Softball Association (ASA)/USA Softball, a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization, announced today that Robert Peņa (Peoria, Ariz.) will take over as Commissioner for the Arizona ASA/USA Softball association, soon to be USA Softball of Arizona, beginning immediately.
"Our ASA/USA Softball of Arizona management team will strive to improve the quality of softball for all levels of play - from the recreational leagues to B level, A level and Gold level competition," Peņa said. "We also plan to help improve our Adult Softball participation and maintain our status as the top slow pitch association in Arizona."
Peņa steps into the position with a backing of over 30 years of experience from all areas of the game as an athlete, coach and administrator. From a young age, Peņa began playing baseball and continued through high school and college, where he was granted a full ride scholarship to attend and play for both Phoenix College and Grand Canyon University. Peņa played in the Men's 30-and-over Men's National Baseball League representing the Arizona Angels, going on to win four World Series Championship titles in 1990-91 and 1995-96, and at the same time entering his rookie season with the Seattle Mariners. Following his playing days, Peņa went on to become a Varsity Softball Head Coach at Xavier College Preparatory which led to his current spot at Pinnacle High School. Shortly after becoming the Head Coach for the Pinnacle high school squad, Peņa started his own business, '9 STARS SPORTS Arizona Fast Pitch Events' and continues to oversee and manage all events. Peņa brings extensive experience, having been a Tournament Director, fast pitch coach and skills clinic instructor at different times throughout his life which will in turn help him lead ASA/USA Softball of Arizona.
