May 2, 1939: Gehrig ends streak




Lou Gehrig's playing career ended on this day in 1939
"On May 2, 1939, New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig benches himself for poor play and ends his streak of consecutive games played at 2,130. “The Iron Horse” was suffering at the time from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), now known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
He never played again and died two years later.  It may a good weekend to catch that great movie "The pride of the Yankees":
