LAFD Captain Lane Kemper (1952-2006) embodied the true spirit of camaraderie and was devoted to helping others. His leadership and friendship left a lasting impression on his friends, family and colleagues. As a tribute to Lane, the annual softball tournament was renamed in his honor. Each year hundreds of firefighters grab their gloves and hit the field to compete station versus station. While carrying on this long-standing tradition and enjoying some laughs off-duty, the event also raises money for the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund.
