Personal Fact of Lou Gehrig

Lou Gehrig was a legendary American baseball player who was voted the greatest first baseman of all time by the Baseball Writers’ Association. He was a gifted athlete from his early years and showed a keen interest in playing baseball and football. He was the only surviving child of his parents and shared a very special bond with his mother. He astonished every spectator witnessing the game with his powerful hitting and massive strokes.

He was popularly nicknamed The Iron Horse as he played for 15 years continuously with the New York Yankees with a total of 2130 consecutive matches, without missing a single one in between. On his 36th birthday, he was diagnosed with ALS disease, a central nervous system disorder, and was given a life expectancy of three more years. A week later, he announced his retirement, leaving his fans teary-eyed who wanted another glimpse of their favorite player on the field.

A special farewell ceremony was held in Yankee Stadium to honor him, where he delivered one of the most memorable speeches of all time. He quoted himself The Luckiest Man on the Face of Earth and expressed his gratitude for each and every person in his life who had supported him in his journey from being an ordinary person to a glorified sportsperson.
