Details: This is an archival photo of Lou Gehrig sliding into home.
Henry Louis 'Lou' Gehrig (June 19, 1903 – June 2, 1941), nicknamed 'The Iron Horse' for his durability, was an American Major League Baseball first baseman. He played his entire 17-year baseball career for the New York Yankees (1923-1939). Gehrig set several major league records. He holds the record for most career grand slams (23). Gehrig is chiefly remembered for his prowess as a hitter, his consecutive games-played record and its subsequent longevity, and the pathos of his farewell from baseball at age 36, when he was stricken with a fatal neurological disease.
