When USAS entered the picture in , the sport was in a state of confusion with no unified set of playing rules and no National Governing Body to provide guidance and stability. USAS changed all that by adopting softball's first universally accepted rules of play and by organizing consistent and fair competition across the nation. USAS has grown from a few hundred teams in the early days to over , teams today, representing a membership of more than 2 million. The ASA, a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization based in Oklahoma City, OK was founded in and has evolved into the strongest softball organization in the country.

About Us. Established in , The San Antonio Amateur Softball Association is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to organize, promote and further amateur softball in San Antonio. We have accomplished this over many years by organizing events, such as Adult Tournaments and Youth Tournaments. Being that this is a very costly program ran by the City of San Antonio, they looked to us for help at many times to keep the program in high quality and alive. SAASA has purchased and donated much of the equipment used for the softball programs in efforts to give the San Antonio community a safe environment to play in. Over the years, SAASA has also sponsored many Girls Fast Pitch teams in achieving their Championship goals by funding their travels to tournaments all over the country. Many of the board members that serve SAASA are retired city employees, current softball players, lawyers, businessmen who have a true passion for the community and for Softball.
In addition, it oversees more than , amateur teams nationwide. It is a c 3 non-profit organization. Since , the organization has run the World Cup of Softball. Due to this designation, USA Softball is responsible for training, equipping, and promoting the six USA softball national teams that compete in events such as the Olympics, Pan American Games, World Championships and other international and domestic events. In , the USA softball women's national team became the first American softball team to compete in the Olympics.
My friend also told me that she was a middle school teacher. If I ever had a teacher like that when I was in middle school, I would have been in heaven. Anyway, after a few hours and many drinks, her husband said to her "hey, you should dance naked around the fire". Come to find out this is something she has done on a few occasions.
