Welcome to The Lats Legacy Foundation

We created this foundation as a living legacy to our father, Dave Latter. “Lats” was dad’s nickname in baseball. We heard story after story about how he impacted the guys he played with and how many lives he touched. Through The Lats Legacy Foundation we intend to honor him and keep his memory alive in a way we know would make him proud. Read more…

Dave was a true friend in every aspect of the word. He was a very special person, devoted father and loyal Trojan. His outgoing personality, uncanny sense of humor, and sincere care for others were just a few traits that set Dave apart from others. I truly miss him every day of my life.

Some days it might be a certain Def Leppard song. Some days it might be a pair of blue Puma sneakers. Some days it might be a flashback to something crazy we did together years ago. But however it hits me, I think of Lats EVERY DAY. I loved our late night phone calls, the USC tailgate parties, hearing about Christian and Briana’s activities and of course, telling the old stories that often started with, ‘Remember that time when…’ Lats and I were great friends. I feel lucky and blessed to have been so close to him for so long. I’ll never meet another person who impacted me as much as Lats did.
