Lou Gehrig Day & ALS Awareness Game

Lou Gehrig Day & ALS Awareness Game

2024 Lou Gehrig Day
  • LOU GEHRIG DAY

    June 2 was chosen specifically as the date for Lou Gehrig Day as it marks when Gehrig became the Yankees’ starting first baseman, thus cementing the start of his incredible streak of consecutive games played. The date also signifies the day he passed from complications of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The focus of Lou Gehrig Day is to remember the legacy of Gehrig and all those lost to the disease that bears his name; raise awareness and funds for research of ALS; and celebrate the groups and individuals who have led the pursuit for cures.
