PVGS to host inaugural Glenn Marringer Memorial Tournament


Ponte Vedra Girls Softball has always been built around their volunteer coaches. Almost three years ago, the PVGS family lost one of the most fun and dynamic coaches they have ever had when Glenn Marringer passed away suddenly. For the past few years, the board members have been searching for a way to honor Marringer’s memory – and on April 9 and 10, Davis Park will be filled with more than 100 softball players running around playing that game that he loved at the inaugural Eat the Marshmallow Glenn Marringer Memorial Tournament.

“Eat the Marshmallow” was one of Glenn’s favorite phrases, meaning “don’t waste the time you have. Instead of putting off fun, have fun today. Just eat the marshmallow.”

The PVGS family is honored to share his fun loving spirit with the surrounding softball teams. We have teams registered from all over Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and as far as Orlando. Needless to say, Marringer’s infectious personality stretched far and wide.

Please join us on April 9 and 10 with your 10u or 12u softball team (recreational and travel teams are welcome) or stop by Davis Park to catch a game, watch our marshmallow eating contest, home run derby or grab lunch at one of our food trucks.

Proceeds are going directly to the Marringer Family Softball Scholarship Fund, the Marringer Family College Scholarship Fund, Change for Change and the PVGS Softball Scholarship fund. For more information, contact Coach Taylor at eatthemarshmallow@gmail.com or (201) 532-9363.
