OKLAHOMA CITY – USA Softball, a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization announced today the appointment of Tim Doby (Carthage, N.C.) as Commissioner for USA Softball of North Carolina. Doby transitions into this position following the retirement of Commissioner Tony Laws.
"I am honored, humbled and excited to be appointed as the next Commissioner for North Carolina,” said Doby. “I have big shoes to fill following the retirement of Tony, but I have been lucky to have learned so much from him the last six years in my role as Junior Olympic Commissioner. My staff and I are eager to bring a fresh perspective to softball in North Carolina and expand the USA Softball brand while giving more teams and umpires the opportunity to play a part in it.”

Additionally, Doby has assisted as a Tournament Representative for the USA Softball National Office in five National Championships while also sending over 100 North Carolina teams to National Championships throughout the years. Outside of his involvement within USA Softball local associations, Doby has also been a regular part of the USA Softball Hall of Fame Complex staff during the Women’s College World Series (WCWS) for a number of years. Doby graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Management.
