The children of Devin Hodges, an Anderson County deputy who was killed while training on marine patrol on Lake Hartwell in June, tossed out the ceremonial first pitches Saturday at the Upstate South Carolina Law Enforcement Memorial Softball Tournament at Century Park.

Kattie, Jeffery, James and Diana, with their mother, Krystal Hodges, took part in the opening ceremonies.

The tournament, featuring upstate law enforcement teams, continues play Sunday beginning at 9 a.m. The championship game is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

T-shirts memorializing the tournament and other fundraising opportunities. The opportunity to donate without attending the tournament is available here. 

Hodges, 30, had served with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office for six months and had served in law enforcement for eight years. He had previously served with the Lander University Department of Public Safety, Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office, Laurens County Sheriff’s Office, and the Calhoun Falls Police Department.
