He still was playing in ball because he over came others pressure and games. He over came the fears that marry her. he was going to pass and kept on living with his family and friends.
HUMBLE-Blue Lou Gehrig was humble for many reasons. One reason is he new that he was a great baseball player but he never took that for granted. He was never boastful. I could argue that he might be the best ball player of all time says the another of this book (Norman L. Macht) could to. Lou was also a player that was selected into the baseball hale of fame with out a vote in 1939 or a thought. Lou was also the first Yankee play to have his number retired. Lou was a humble player and man.4
DEDICATED-RedLou played games when he was hurt and never complained.Lou also hustled like no other player in his time. Lou wouldalways be at batting practice hitting away and stayed late toplay. Even when Lou was effected by the ALS disease he stillwould hit and swing the bat as hard as God would let him.(Which was very fast and strong). Lou was also dedicated offthe field he loved his family a lot. When his mother and fatherwere ill. He would be right by there side. Lou was a great man!
LOYAL-Blue Lou was very loyal. One way Lou was loyal was whenhe wasn’t helping his club win. He took himself out of thenext game. Also when players got caught up in bad thingslike gamboling and getting money if they blow the game Louwas not into that kind of stuff he was loyal to his family. Henever did something that would get his baseball careerthrown away. He loved baseball and his family.
Lous favorite hobby was to deep sea fish. As you see theirs fish on the wall anda out door theme to it. Lou was always out fashion and this room it a little like thata common picture that you will see is of Lou and Babe Ruth fish on a boat. This roomis good for Lou.
To Lou Gehrig one of the best baseball players of all times. He was a great man who unforchenally died of ALS disease. RIP!The plaque that I would give Lou would be thisone. This shows that Lou loved baseball and wasa great man. My symbol is the baseball things thatis the glove and bat. Another one is the fight todefeat ALS. This is what I would give to Lou.
