ISF Appoints Ron Radigonda as Executive Director

PLANT CITY, Fla. - The International Softball Federation (ISF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Ron Radigonda as the Executive Director of the ISF. This appointment, approved by the Board of Directors of the ISF, takes effect immediately.

Radigonda is an experienced administrator, very knowledgeable about the game of softball and sport administration. He served as the Executive Director for the Amateur Softball Association in the United States for 15 years until his recent retirement and prior to this was the Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Sacramento in California (USA).

“We were very fortunate to have a candidate of Ron’s experience and ability available to us at this time. We are going through a time of transition at the ISF and Ron’s ability to lead change and provide senior leadership and guidance to the organization as we forge a new organizational structure under the umbrella of the World Baseball Softball Confederation will be very important to building and maintaining a strong ISF now and in the future,” ISF President Dale McMann expressed about the appointment.

Ron’s first responsibilities will take him to the ISF Junior Men’s World Championship in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada and then to the ISF Women’s World Championship in Haarlem, Netherlands, in August.

In commenting on his appointment and attendance at the world championships, Ron said, “I am delighted to be joining the ISF. Under the leadership of President McMann, I believe we have an opportunity to grow the ISF, further develop the sport of softball and by working with other members of the WBSC re-gain our place on Olympic Games Program. I will be meeting with a number of individuals and groups at both world championships to hear first-hand their thoughts on how softball should develop in the coming months and years.”
