the ceremonial first pitch to Richmond Police Officers Caine and
San Pablo PDís Honor Guard posted the colors during the ceremony while a bag piper performed. Richmond PD SWAT
Members performed the ceremonial 21 gun salute. While very emotional, it was an incredible way to honor Brad Moody and all the fallen First Responders who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Contra Costa County Sherriff Office had their Helicopter conduct a fly over the field during the ceremony.
The Moody Family was very happy how we honored Brad and all the fallen Officers.

I would like to thank the Richmond Police Department, San Pablo Police Department and the Contra Costa County Sheriffís Office for lending their resources to make the Moody Tournament special for the Moody Family and all the players and family
members who attended.
I feel the Moody Ceremony is very special to the Moody Family and all the players who attended. I got most of the ideas for the ceremony from the Sterling Heights tourney in Michigan.
This is one of the best tourneys that I have had the pleasure to play in.
They sure know how to honor Wouters/Sawyers and all the Police
Officers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Thanks again to the teams who committed and played in the 10th
Annual Brad Moody Memorial Tournament!
