OKLAHOMA CITY — The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) of America/USA Softball continues its fundraising efforts for Susan G.

The USA Softball Pink Auction includes autographed, game-worn jerseys from members of the 2013, 2014 and 2015 USA Softball Women’s National Team. Only items listed by Softball Outlet are a part of the benefit auction for Susan G. Komen Central and Western Oklahoma. All items are accompanied by a USA Softball certificate of authenticity.
Since the inception of the “Pink Out” auction in 2008, ASA/USA Softball has raised over $71,000 for Susan G. Komen Central and Western Oklahoma through the auctioning of game-worn USA Softball jerseys as well as bats, cleats, helmets and other softball apparel. In addition to the monies raised through the auction, ASA/USA Softball also creates additional awareness for the foundation by wearing specially made pink USA Softball jerseys on international television broadcasts.
