OKLAHOMA CITY - USA Softball, a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization announced today that Dan Boyce (Manchester, N.H.) has been appointed as Commissioner for USA Softball of New Hampshire.  Boyce will assume his responsibilities immediately.

"It’s an honor and a privilege to represent USA Softball of New Hampshire as the newest Commissioner,” said Boyce. "I look forward to continuing to move New Hampshire forward as Alisa Durocher did as our State Commissioner for the last three years.  She truly did an outstanding job and USA Softball of New Hampshire is a much stronger association because of her extreme hard work and dedication. I also look forward to working with the outstanding staff we currently have in place as we all continue to grow USA Softball in our great state.  I would also like to thank past Commissioners Doug Dicey and the late Bob Hopley as well as current Deputy Umpire-in-Chief Luther Cooper and Ken Messing who I have had the privilege to work alongside.  Without this special group of people I would not have the honor of serving as Commissioner of New Hampshire.”

A former player for over 16 years, Boyce also spent time as a USA Softball-registered umpire before taking on administrative roles within the USA Softball of New Hampshire association for the past 25 years.  Most recently, Boyce has served as the Assistant State Commissioner.  Prior to that, he served as a District Commissioner for 10 years.

Boyce is a graduate of Hesser College with an Associate of Science degree in Business Management.
