ASA announces partnership with Spectrum Electronics to promote lightning safety.

Oklahoma City, OK, November 07, 2008 --( The Amateur Softball of America Association announced recently it is working cooperatively with Spectrum Electronics in a new partnership to promote Lightning Safety through the use of the ThunderBolt® Storm Detector to all ASA members and its use at all field facilities.

"The state-of-the-art technology provided by the ThunderBolt® Storm Detector will be of great benefit to our members when they conduct sporting events and outdoor activities at any complex or facility, in the community," said ASA Director of Marketing Kelly McKeown. "The ThunderBolt® Storm Detector, which actually tracks storms and provides the estimated time of arrival to the user, can only enhance efforts by ASA members to provide safety and protection consistent with severe weather safety for all parties at an event. It is a device that will revolutionize the manner in which our members learn of the presence of severe weather at their events. I believe this is a very inexpensive, potentially life-saving piece of equipment."

"On behalf of Spectrum Electronics, we are very excited to be working with the Amateur Softball Association of America ," said Steve Vazquez, Representative for Spectrum Electronics. "We are eager to support and work with all ASA members regarding storm and lightning safety."
