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.

Show Some Kids A Corny Movie

...and help the awareness of Lou Gehrig live on.

Here's a nice article on a lot of good baseball movies for the kids to watch this summer.

Toted as "the private life of a public hero," the 1942 biopic The Pride of the Yankees is the emotional story of basbeall hero Lou Gehrig (Gary Cooper) and how his career was cut short by ALS. Gehrig's career is followed from his childhood to his final speech in Yankee Stadium. Because Gehrig was left-handed and Cooper was right-handed, the game sequences were filmed in reverse and then flipped.

If ever there were a perfect summer to show some kids "The Pride of the Yankees," this is it.
