On March 4th and 5th of this year the Brothers of Cal Alpha Gamma at CSU San Marcos put on the 1st Annual Paddy Murphy Homerun Derby benefiting the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Law Enforcement Memorial.
In March of 2016 the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation announced the creaCon of the memorial after the loss of two brothers: Officer David Nelson (Occidental ’11), Bakersfield CA Police Dept.; and Detective Daniel Ellis (Eastern Kentucky ’06), Richmond KY Police Dept. who were both killed in the line of duty in 2015. The memorial will be housed at the Levere Memorial Temple in Evanston.
The homerun derby saw 70 batters composed of 15 teams and 32 coaches participate. As part of the fundraiser registrations to the derby were sold. The following day a banquet was held where tickets were also sold. Both events saw participation from not only our SAE Brothers, but other fraternities and sororities, an adult softball team, families, and police officers. In total $6500 was raised benefiting the memorial.
