Our friend PT Muldoon wrote a poem to honor Lou Gehrig this Lou Gehrig Day. You can read the poem below, and donate to end ALS in honor of Lou Gehrig Day here


Luckiest Man on Earth


When the bases were all loaded

And those seats filled to the rim

It took one you could count on

And that one was usually him


And for seventeen sweet seasons

He played ball with fire and skill

They nicknamed him the iron horse

Playing thru pain with iron will


ALS would claim his body’s fight

And it took him from the game

His fight revealed his inner strength

From the disease that bore his name


A lesser man it would have crushed

But Lou still fought for all he was worth

When they asked about his bad break

He said I’m the luckiest man on earth
