Remembering Ritchie


The annual Richie Madeiras Softball tourney, in memory of the popular Oak Bluffs shellfish warden and organized yearly by Ray Tattersall, took place last weekend at Tisbury’s War Veterans Memorial Park. Seven teams competed.

The winning combo was the Hatt Flooring team, the only unbeaten squad, 3-0. At 2-1 were the Hurricanes and Aquidneck Plumbing and the Wildcats. The Shockers and Fast Lane were 1-2. The Stampede was winless, 0-3.

Richie Roy won sportsmanship honors.

Tad Gold was MVP for the winning Hatt Flooring team and Ryan Viera was MVP for Aquidneck.

Proceeds went to “You Got a Friend,” an Island charity.
