Lou Gehrig, 1938

Lou Gehrig, the Iron Horse, played his entire 17-year career for the New York Yankees. In this black and white photograph, we see Lou at batting practice, in 1938 toward the end of his career. Gehrig retired in 1939 at the age of 36, having been stricken with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), now often called Lou Gehrig's Disease. During his career, he set several records, most famously for playing 2,130 consecutive games, a record that was unbroken for 56 years.
