Product Overview

"All these many years down the road, Lou Gehrig's reputation still holds up--as does Ray Robinson's elegant biography."--Bob Costas
Lou Gehrig will go down in history as one of the best ballplayers of all time; he was elected to the Hall of Fame and played in a record-setting 2,130 consecutive games. ALS--known today as "Lou Gehrig's Disease"--robbed him of his physical skills at a relatively young age, and he died in 1941. Ray Robinson re-creates the life of this legendary ballplayer and also provides an insightful look at baseball, including all the great players of that era: Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and more. 16 photographs.
