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.

July 4 Needs To Be Special At Every Baseball Game!

On July 4, how about having every baseball game remember Lou Gehrig's farewell?  Major League Baseball all the way to backyard Whiffle Ball games played while waiting for the burgers on the grill... just take a moment to remember an historic day in baseball.

This isn't complicated.  It's not a fundraiser.  It need not disrupt the fireworks and parties.  It's a very simple and fitting way to remember a great sportsman, a great sport, and a disease.  It would teach children who Lou Gehrig was.  It would remind us all of what is important in life.

Let's add this tradition to a sport that is rich with traditions.  Those who control the displays at professional ballparks, please simply play the speech.  Those who are playing on a sandlot or backyard, please take a moment to talk about what Lou had to say.
