The Gary Gryder Memorial Softball Tournament was established on June 29, 2018 – this date was the 10th anniversary of his line of duty death. Gary was a husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He was also an avid softball player who spent many weekends a year playing the police softball circuit with his colleagues from the Houston Police Department. The tournament welcomes all active and retired police, fire, ems, and military to participate. All proceeds raised have been used to establish the Gary Gryder Scholarship Fund, a fund which will award scholarships to winners of an essay competition. Eligible applicants must be directly related to players who participated in the tournament. For more information on the Gary Gryder Memorial Softball Tournament, please contact us.
