Farewell to Baseball
by: Lou Gehrig
Lou Gehrig was an amazing baseball player one of the great’s. A man who made baseball what it is today. He unfortunately got diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis better known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The disease forced him to retire from baseball.
I fell that he got his point across not for the fans to be sad or angry but be glad in the great career he had and how thankful he was.
Remembering Lou Gehrig
Friday, Sep. 25th, 9pm
25 Main Street
I feel like the audience just wanted an explanation after the speech on why he can’t play any longer.
Some rewards are to not be sad when life hits you the hardest be thankful for the life you lived and don’t ever let the problem take control of your life.
It’s valuable because I mean Lou Gehrig is a baseball great but also because it shown other people with the same disease to value what they have done in their own life.
In my opinion the speech is still amazing today in my mind nothing can be added to help the speech it’s so good.
