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.
