2009 ASA Rules Approves Gorilla Gold for Softball Pitchers
Resin-based grip enhancer can be kept in pocket
Lewiston, ID (March 15, 2009) –The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) 2009 Rule Book has included Gorilla Gold, the world’s leading producer and marketer of resin-tackified grip towels, as the only approved drying agent allowed in a pitcher’s pocket.
The new ruling aligns the ASA with NCAA Softball, which has allowed pitchers to use Gorilla Gold for the past four years.
The new ASA ruling states: “Rule 6 Section 6 A Fast Pitch: an Approved manufactured drying agent that is included on the list published by the ASA, may be used by the pitcher. The Resin must be left on the ground and the approved drying agent in the pitcher’s pocket. Effect: If any other substance is found in the pitcher’s pocket the pitcher shall be ejected.”
“Some drying agents are resin and need to submitted to ASA for approval before they can be used by the pitcher. Currently only Gorilla Gold is approved.”
