Throughout eight years of grade school, he never missed a single day. During fourteen years as a first baseman for the New York Yankees, he didn't miss a single game. Lou Gehrig's stamina earned him the nickname Iron Horse and helped him set what was then a world record - 2130 consecutive games. Lou considered himself a very lucky man indeed - even though on his thirty-sixth birthday he was diagnosed with a rare and deadly disease of the central nervous system.Steadfast, courageous, and modest, Lou Gehrig inspired many people. But perhaps what most deeply moved his admirers was the grace with which he faced the biggest challenge of them all.
