April 1, 2002 – Managers of men's modified fastpitch teams wishing to participate in the sixth annual Ruby Rutnik Memorial Softball Tournament on St. John next weekend are asked to contact tournament directors Gayle and George Deller by calling 774-0352 or e-mailing to ggdeller@islands.vi. Or call tournament organizers Andrew Rutnik and Janet Cook-Rutnik at 776-6809.
There are four available men's team berths in the tournament, and they'll being allocated on a first-come basis, Gayle Deller said. The men's games will be played Friday and Saturday night with the playoff Sunday in Cruz Bay. The team entry fee is $50. The winning team will take home a $250 cash prize.
Playing separately in the tournament are girls' high school teams from St. Thomas and St. Croix. Proceeds from inning sponsorships and other fund-raising activities will go toward creating an endowment for an annual scholarship in memory of Ruby Rutnik, who died in 1996 at age 21 in a car crash in Washington, D.C., where she was a college student.
