Overview

Like a powerful locomotive, Lou Gehrig slugged his way through 14 seasons as the pride of the New York Yankees. Never missing a game, the six-time All-Star holds several Major League Baseball records. Refusing to see himself as a natural, Gehrig achieved greatness through his unwavering dedication to the game he loved. Then, suddenly, the Iron Man began to rust. The home runs ceased. The hits became misses. Gehrig had contracted amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. Harnessing the strength he had displayed on the baseball diamond, Gehrig struggled onward with dignity and purpose. Although the disease that now bears his name ultimately took Lou Gehrig's life, it did not extinguish his spirit or his legacy.
