Luckiest man [the life and death of Lou Gehrig by Jonathan Eig ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Although his record of playing in 2,130 consecutive Major League baseball games (from 1925 to 1939) was eventually broken in 1995, Gehrig is still remembered as one of the sport's greatest figures. But Eig, a Wall Street Journal special correspondent, shows that the life of the "Iron Horse" wasn't quite as squeaky clean as Gary Cooper portrayed it to be in the 1943 film Pride of the Yankees. Still, the blemishes are strikingly minor in comparison to those of today's star athletes: the worst anyone can really say about Gehrig is that he didn't like spending money, or that sometimes he'd just barely appear in a game in order to continue his streak.

Letter, [1939-1941 by Lou Gehrig ( )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Letter, [1939-1941], from Lou Gehrig to his wife Eleanor regarding his conversation with Joe McCarthy and his decision to take himself out of the lineup for a temporary rest. A transcript of the letter is included. The library holds only the first page of the letter. The letter is on the stationary of the Book Cadillac Hotel in Detroit. It is not dated but was most likely written on the May 3, 1939 the day after Gehrig and Manager Joe McCarthy met in a Detroit hotel room and Gehrig asked to be pulled from the lineup. Hall of Fame librarians originally thought that the letter was written after Gehrig was diagnosed with ALS. That diagnosis occurred on June 12 in Rochester, MN, and so it is unlikely that this letter refers to the diagnosis. More likely, Gerhig is referring to his voluntary pulling himself out of the lineup and ending his streak of 2130 consecutive games played.
