SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - People who donated memorabilia to the troubled Institute for International Sport in Rhode Island say they want their items back.
Wilma Briggs, a pioneer in women's professional baseball, told The Providence Journal that she wants her honorary plaque removed from the institute's Scholar-Athlete Hall of Fame in South Kingstown.
The 81-year-old former North Kingstown teacher says she no longer wants to be associated with the institute.
State police are investigating the organization that runs the World Scholar-Athlete Games over questions about how it spent state grant money , how it acquired resort property in North Carolina and other allegations.
A few other people are also concerned about the items they lent the institute. Philanthropist Alan Shawn Feinstein says he wants the Babe Ruth baseball cards he donated to be returned.
