I am a educator working on my Masters in American History. In addition, I write over at my site historyforfree.com where I discuss many topics (including baseball).
Anyhow, I wanted to share my post with you "Lou Gehrig: Hero and Icon in Turbulent Times." As Yankees fans, I feel you will appreciate my tribute to one of only 14 Yankee captains in history.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and I hope that you enjoy it. I will be checking out comments below. As a Mariner fan, I am also interested in who you think will be a better big league player over their career: Michael Pineda or Jesus Montero? I KNOW there might be some strong opinions in regard to this!
Best of luck in your season,
