HERMISTON, Ore. – Two years a go Shayne Arndt jumped into a leadership role with the North American Fastpitch Association when he agreed to become NAFA Director of the Northwest Region, a territory that includes Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.

That’s a huge swath of fastpitch country in which to try and expand a sport that, as in much of the country, has been declining for the past 30 years.

Arndt doesn’t claim to be a miracle worker and he does’t promise sudden explosive growth. His plan is more pragmatic.

“I want to build relationships with other teams,” said Arndt, 40. “We compete on the field, but we must cooperate off it to build more teams, leagues and regional tournaments. There was a rich history of fastpitch in Oregon, but right now it’s dormant. Two years a go I saw a need for leadership to get the ball rolling again. I love the game, that’s why I do it.”
