HISTORY OF THE AWARD

The 2016 Season and 20th year Home Tournament was dedicated to #23 Rebecca Brownstone who was a member of the original 1996 Ulster Fillies Team. The whole team and Rebecca's parents traveled from all over the country to be at Cantine Field for dinner and a memorial service for their daughter, friend and teammate who had sadly passed away in 2015 after a battle with cancer.

 

 The Fillies made a donation to the Brownstone family in Rebecca’s name and in turn the Brownstone’s graciously wanted us to use the donation to somehow help out current Fillies players. 

 

This award will be given out annually by the Ulster Fillies Organization to current deserving Fillies players going off to college to play softball. These players must possess high Fillies values in academic achievement, character, sportsmanship, charity and family.
