NOLA Softball League Commissioner Al Loupe has apparently resigned his position as the head man in charge of the league according to a post to his personal Facebook page.
Here is the text of the Facebook post from 5/14/2014:
Well…. A chapter in my life comes to an end. I resigned as Nola Softball League commissioner today. It has been a long and rewarding experience serving on the board, and I have learned a lot from my time. I look forward to continuing to coach and play on Avita’s Hit Dats and managing Avita’s Tap Dats. Thanks to everyone that has believed in me and has been a part of this experience. I’m excited to see the continued forward motion of Nola Softball League.
With the apparent resignation of Mr. Loupe the NOLA Softball League will be on its third commissioner in about one year’s time. Per Section 5.07 of the NOLA Softball League bylaws, the outgoing commissioner will appoint a replacement to fill the remainder of the current term. All indications point to assistant commissioner C.J. Davidson being appointed to that spot, but it seems as if anyone that is a member in good standing with the NOLA Softball League can be appointed to the position.
Mark Boline, founder of the NOLA Softball League and the first commissioner of the league resigned mid-season last year and appointed Loupe. Now, the same scenario is playing out again one year later.
The DD has a request into the NOLA Softball League for comment on this situation. We have no information at this time on whether or not Mr. Loupe’s decision to step down had anything to do with the less than flattering ratings issue that the NOLA Board of Trustees dealt with a month ago or not. There has been no official confirmation from the league that the commissioner’s post has been vacated.

More to come on this situation as it develops.
