Brookings man named SD slowpitch commissioner
Doug Mahanke of Brookings, has been named the new South Dakota Amateur Softball Association Men's Slowpitch Commissioner.
He replaces Gary Harrington, of Huron, who held the position for 28 years. The search for a new Commissioner was narrowed from five down to two before Mahanke was named.
Mahanke's involvement with SDASA dates back to 1985 when he was playing 16-, 14- and 12-inch men's and co-ed slowpitch, while also playing and coaching fastpitch.
