MLB Network releases new Lou Gehrig short: "Heart of a Hero"

1

Nancy Frates (mother of the late ALS advocate Pete Frates) narrates this moving new feature released in time for the inaugural Lou Gehrig Day. The "Iron Horse" was an absolutely unbelievable baseball players and by all accounts, an even better person. It's a tragedy that the game lost him on this day 80 years ago, so young at age 37. Gehrig's memory lives on, as does the fight against ALS.
