Henry Louis Gehrig was an American Superstar and a professional baseball first baseman who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees. 

Gehrig was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, which earned him his nickname "The Iron Horse" He was born on June 19, 1903, Yorkville, New York, NY and Died: June 2, 1941, Riverdale, New York, NY

Today we pay tribute to this real Yankee hero who won the admiration and support of Americans and will always live in our hearts.

Near my home, in #NewRochelle, New York is a street named after the Iron Horse. He lived there and reportedly hosted great baseball players the likes of George Herman BABE Ruth. As we celebrate Lou Gehrig day, let #USA fanatics remember what a real hero looks like and how he responds to a bad break.
