Evelyn Andrews Memorial Scholarship

*Available for High School Seniors

USA Softball is the National Governing Body of Softball in the United States. As a part of USA Softball of Sacramento’s Mission Statement, one of the goals of our organization is to provide scholarships to enable more persons an opportunity for advanced education. The USA Softball of Sacramento, Evelyn Andrews Memorial Scholarship is designed to help assist student-athletes who have participated in our local tournament program.

The USA Softball Evelyn Andrews Scholarship is awarded to players each year who embody the work ethic, attitude and overall spirit of Evelyn Andrews. Evelyn was a student athlete who had a passion for softball. She grew up playing in USA Softball Tournaments, especially in the Sacramento area.

In 2017 at the age of 17, she was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor.  After beating cancer, she went on to Humboldt State with a softball scholarship. Fall of 2019 Evelyn was diagnosed with cancer again - Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, a blood cancer caused by her chemotherapy in 2017. After beating cancer for a second time, Evelyn passed away February 2020 due to a blood clotting issue commonly found in AML patients. For the record, EV-2, cancer-0. 

This scholarship is funded through the contributions of local tournament directors and other special events during the year.

Stanley Fingerut Memorial Scholarship

*Available to current college athletes attending local college.

The Stanley Fingerut Annual Scholarship is designed to provide funds to a student-athlete attending a college within the boundaries of USA Softball of Sacramento. Stan was a beloved umpire who officiated college, high school and recreation softball for over 40 years in the Sacramento area.  Stan proudly served as the Sacramento ASA Umpire-In-Chief from 1979-1989, the ASA Regional Umpire-In-Chief from 1989-2000, and on the ASA National Umpire Staff from 1989-2000.  Stan was proud of his involvement in officiating Women’s sports both basketball and softball, but softball was his favorite pastime.  Stan always had an affinity for Women's softball; watching the excellence, competitiveness and their love for the game. The Stanley Fingerut Scholarship Program is the perfect tribute to his legacy and love for the game.
