Lou Gehrig: The Pride of the Yankees

This is a tribute to the life of the Yankee legend who died from a degenerative disease that would come to bare his name "Lou Gehrig's Disease".  More information on Gehrig's Famous Speech can be found here.

This was a poem presented to Lou Gehrig by his teammates:

"We've been to the wars together;
We took our foes as they came;
And always you were the leader,
And ever you played the game.

Idol of cheering millions,
Records are yours by sheaves;
Iron of frame they hailed you
Decked you with laurel leaves.

But higher than that we hold you,
We who have known you best;
Knowing the way you came through
Every human test.

Let this be a silent token
Of lasting Friendship's gleam,
And all that we've left unspoken;
Your Pals of the Yankees Team."
