MLB: Lou Gehrig Day

2 June

A recent addition to the MLB Legacy Day calendar, Lou Gehrig Day celebrates the life and career of Yankees legendary first baseman, Lou Gehrig. Gehrig sadly passed away in 1941, just two years after being forced to retire (in his mid-30s) from the sport he dominated and giving one of the most famous speeches in American history. Gehrig had been diagnosed with ALS – the disease that many still refer to as “Lou Gehrig’s disease”.
