Player Biography
Baseball’s “Iron Horse,” Lou Gehrig teamed with Babe Ruth to form the sport’s most devastating hitting tandem. A “Gibraltar in cleats,” Gehrig posted 13 consecutive seasons with 100 runs scored and 100 RBIs, averaging 139 runs and 148 RBI. The two-time American League Most Valuable Player set an A.L. mark with 184 RBIs in 1931, hit a record 23 career grand slams and won the 1934 Triple Crown. His .361 batting average in seven World Series led the New York Yankees to six titles. A true gentleman and a tragic figure, Gehrig’s consecutive games-played streak ended at 2,130, when he was sidelined by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a disease which now bears his name.
