The Career and Life of Lou Gehrig

Lou Gehrig played his entire career with the New York Yankees.  He was voted the greatest first baseman of all-time by The Baseball Writers’ Association in 1969 and was the leading vote-getter on the All-Century Team chosen by fans in 1999.

Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 1939 – a disorder now commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig Disease.  The disease forced him to retire at age 36 and claimed his life two years later.
