Thank you


from all of us with the

Panthers organizations!

We salute you!  



The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club wont be worth a dime.

        Welcome to the Oregon Panthers website! Our organization is dedicated to providing girls with the opportunity to learn softball, teamwork, sportsmanship, work ethic, and values in an atmosphere that may allow them to earn a college scholarship. The Panther mission statement is to prepare players to succeed at the collegiate level in softball and in life. 

Oregon Panthers welcome Rusty Keith as General Manager!

After many years of being an active hands on manager and coach of the Oregon Panthers, founder Jerry Orlanda turns the reigns of day to day operations over to Rusty Keith.  Jerry will remain active in the organization as President, but looks forward taking a more hands off approach in the future.  Rusty has been very active in the softball world for many years and has a variety of new ideas to implement allowing our players the best opportunity to get recruited.  Rusty's complete bio can be found on the 12A team page.
