July 4, 1939: Lou Gehrig said goodbye to baseball



We celebrate another anniversary of Lou Gehrig's farewell speech.  It happened on July 4, 1939 when Gehrig was honored by the Yankees.   

He played in 2,130 consecutive games and did not play again after he took himself out of the lineup earlier in 1939.   

He died in 1941 at age 37.   

The speech spoke volumes about the man, his integrity and love for the game.
