The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in Jackson will honor its late director, Michael Rubenstein, with a new award.

Sports Hall executive director Rick Cleveland announced the
creation of the Rube Award over the weekend during a memorial
service in Booneville, Rubenstein's hometown.

"Rube" was his nickname.

Rubenstein, a former sportscaster, died in December.

Cleveland says the first award will be presented July 27 to
honor an individual who has supported and contributed to sports in
Mississippi.
