The F. R. Feaver Memorial Trophy is awarded annually in memory of Frank Feaver, who was the O.A.S.A. Secretary from 1943 – 1956.  Frank’s dedication, service and devotion played a major role in the expansion and development of the game of softball.  This award was first introduced in 1972.

This award is presented to a player, official or officer of any league or Association, who in the opinion of the Feaver awards committee has made an outstanding contribution to the game of softball.

The Feaver award for 2006 is presented to Sylvia Ryan of Whitby.

Sylvia has certainly made an outstanding contribution to the game of softball both at the local and provincial levels.

Sylvia has been involved with 3-4 fastball teams each year since 2003.  In 2002 and 2003 she was the Secretary for the Oshawa City and District Softball Association.  In 2004 and 2005 she was a director for the O.A.S.A. Expo, and in 2005 she was the secretary/treasurer for the Oshawa City and District Softball Association as well as the 1st Vice-President of the Canadian Masters Fastball Association.  Sylvia was also appointed to the O.A.S.A.
