The Career of Lou Gehrig:
Lou Gehrig played 17 seasons from 1923 to 1939 for the New York Yankees. He was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, a trait which earned him his nickname "The Iron Horse". A six-time World Series champion and seven-time All-Star, he finished with a career batting average of .340, hit 493 home runs and had 1,995 runs batted in (RBI). A Triple Crown winner in 1934, he was twice named the American League's (AL) Most Valuable Player. Gehrig was the first MLB player to have his uniform number retired. He is was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.
Gehrig was voted the greatest first baseman of all time by the Baseball Writers' Association in 1969, and was the leading vote-getter on the Major League Baseball All-Century Team chosen by fans in 1999. A monument in Gehrig's honor, originally dedicated by the Yankees in 1941, currently resides in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. The Lou Gehrig Memorial Award is given annually to the MLB player best exhibiting his integrity and character.
