Yankees Remember Lou Gehrig

Honoring #4's Enduring Legacy at Yankee Stadium 75 Years Later

July 4th often brings memories of summer barbeques, American flags waving and baseball. This year marks a special occasion in history, and it’s not the birth of the nation. It’s also one of the most memorable events of baseball history. In 1939 the New York Yankees honored their leader and Captain Lou Gehrig during Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day.
