Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds has won this year’s Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, sponsored by the Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity, headquartered in Oxford, Ohio. Phi Delta Theta presents the award annually to a Major League Baseball player who best exemplifies the giving character of Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig, a member of the Fraternity’s Columbia University chapter. The award was first presented in 1955 and is permanently maintained at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. A team of representatives from Phi Delta Theta will present the award to Votto on Friday evening, July 27 when the Reds host the Philadelphia Phillies. Event and tickets details coming soon!
The Fraternity and the Phi Delta Theta Foundation are committed to developing strong leadership skills from the beginning of one’s membership. The Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute (Kleberg) was created to meet that goal. By bringing together the up and coming freshman and sophomore leaders from our chapters across the United States and Canada, Kleberg creates a Phi Delt learning laboratory, where one is able to learn leadership skills from his peers and distinguished alumni.
