Synopsis

Lou Gehrig Iron Horse of Baseball by James Buckley Jr.

A streak of 2,130 consecutive games played...Several World Series wins - including a four-game sweep...An American League single-season batting record that still stands...And that's only a few of Lou Gehrig's many achievements. Though illness sapped his strength, it never killed his spirit. Written by one of America's leading sportswriters, this biography of baseball's Iron Horse will inspire children as it reveals: Gehrig's childhood gymnastic workouts at a special German gym; how his incredible batting ability turned his high school team into a sensation; his lifelong struggle with shyness; and the tragic ailment that ended his career and life.
