The Pride of the Yankees
This enduring classic chronicles Lou Gehrig's life from playing baseball in the streets of New York City to the Ivy League fields of Columbia University and finally, to Yankee Stadium. It also shows his struggle with ALS, a disease unknown at the time, and the kind spirit and charisma that make him such a beloved sports legend to this day.
