This saturday is the 70th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s courageous and legendary speech at Yankee Stadium in his farewell. To honor him, Major League Baseball and it’s players will honor Gehrig and the disease that claimed his life with a patch pictured above.
This is a very good charity and cause. The idea to raise awareness on this terrible disease is very hopeful. To read more about it, check out MLB.com; where there will be a charity auction held to support the cause of fighting ALS.
*Also, check out ‘Letters from Lou’. Really good reads that ESPN has put together of the Iron Horse’s correspondence with close friend and doctor up until his last days. That is one brave man. A man’s man.
