OKLAHOMA CITY – The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) of America has announced that Rodney Cobb of San Marcos has been appointed the commissioner of Texas ASA. He assumed his duties in November during the 79th Annual Governing Council Meeting in Shreveport, La.

“There are some big shoes to fill in the Texas Commissioner role. Past Texas Commissioners have been WW Bill Keathan, Jack Aaron, Ronnie Isham and Glenn Morrison, and they have done some great things for Texas and the national organization,” Cobb said. “I am going to try to stay the course with Texas. I would hope that I can add some of my own touches to the organization, but Texas has a great tradition. It is really not broken so there is not a lot to fix.”

Cobb has served the Texas ASA for 25 years as the commissioner of District 19 and the deputy state commissioner for the past two years. He has also held other positions including the area vice president for the south central region, which extends from Kerrville, Texas, to Corpus Christi, and the chair of the state district review committee.

Outside of Texas, he has served the ASA for more than 10 years as an at-large player representative and three years as the regional player representative. For the past eight years, he has also been a national player representative, attending several ASA National Championship tournaments.

A graduate of Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University), Cobb is currently the Director of Community Services for the City of San Marcos. Joining the City in 1978, he has served as Director of Parks & Recreation, Parks & Recreation Superintendent, and Activity Supervisor over 32 years.

Cobb is a member of several professional organizations including Texas Recreation and Park Society, National Association of Sports Officials, Texas Amateur Athletic Federation and Texas State University Alumni Association.
