Lou Gehrig Retires in Yankee Stadium

Original caption: 7/4/39-New York: Lou Gehrig, the "Iron Horse" of baseball, who was forced to the bench by amyotrophic lateral scherosis after playing 2,130 consecutive games, is touched by fans demonstration as he is acclaimed in a manner unrivaled in baseball history. Upwards of 75,000 jammed Yankee Stadium to honor Lou. He is shown here--handkerchief to his face, deeply moved by the ovation they gave him.
