Sept. 25, 2001 – Distribution of last season's trophies will mark the opening of the 2001-2002 season of the Susthens Vialet Over Forty Modified Pitch Softball League. The ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at the Emile Griffith Ball Park on St. Thomas, and games will begin at 1 p.m.
The first game will be a rematch between last season's champion team, the Movements, and the division runner-up, the Bapos. The rest of the schedule includes Ambassadors vs. Ninjars at 3 p.m., Roughnecks vs. Dynamics at 5 p.m., and Silver Bullets vs. Oilers at 7 p.m., according to a release. The league has a total of 10 teams. The two teams not playing at the opener are Savages and Royals.
The Ambassadors is a St. John team, and the slate of games on three Sundays will be played at Winston Wells Ball Park in Cruz Bay. Those scheduled dates are Nov. 18, Jan. 13, and Feb. 3.
The season is expected to finish before Carnival season. Regular play is scheduled through February, with playoffs in March, according to spokesperson Karl Callwood.
The season is foreshortened, said Callwood, due to the pullout of a group that had formerly organized the league. Three weeks ago the V.I. Amateur Sports Association stepped in and quickly got the season set. The full schedule of games will be released shortly.
