Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

Thanks, MLB, For Stepping Up To The ALS Awareness Plate Once More

A year ago the world was buzzing about Lou Gehrig's Disease because of the wonderful 4 ALS effort conceived by Michael Goldsmith and delivered by MLB on last July 4 -- the 70th anniversary of Lou Gehrig's farewell speech.

Again this year Lou Gehrig will be remembered at baseball parks throughout the country on our nation's birthday.

The buzz isn't as loud this year and Michael Goldsmith isn't alive to throw out another pitch, but MLB is still remembering Lou Gehrig and a disease that has persisted to take our best and brightest for far too many years.

Thanks, Commissioner Selig, for remembering and continuing the fight.
