Cal Ripken, Jr., 2007 Upper Deck Iron Men #IM32
On this day in 1941, Lou Gehrig lost his battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the debilitating disease that soon came to bear his name. He was just shy of his 38th birthday when he died. 59 years later, there is still no cure for Lou Gehrig's disease. If you wish to help fight the good fight, you can make a donation to the ALS Association here.
