Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A streak of 2,130 consecutive games played. Several World Series wins—including a four-game sweep. An American League single-season batting record that still stands. And thats only a few of Lou Gehrigs many achievements.  Though illness sapped his strength, it never killed his spirit.  Written by one of Americas leading sportswriters, this biography of baseballs “Iron Horse” will inspire and touch kids as it reveals:

- Gehrigs childhood gymnastic workouts at a special German gym called a turnverein

- How his incredible batting ability turned his high school team into a sensation

- His lifelong struggle with shyness

- The “Great Home Run Derby” with Babe Ruth—perhaps baseballs most astonishing competition ever

- The tragic ailment that ended his career--and life
