The annual Lane Kemper Softball Classic charity tournament attracts more than 600 L.A. City firefighters and 300-400 spectators.
The event is named in honor of Captain Lane Kemper (1952-2006), a man who embodied the true spirit of camaraderie and devoted himself to helping others. As a tribute to him, our firefighters have come together to carry on this long-standing tradition, which raises money for the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firefighter’s Fund. Here’s how his friend Firefighter III Jim Stiglich described Lane and the event.
