ALS Awareness Days at the Ballpark

Lou Gehrig Day, observed annually on June 2nd, commemorates the moment Gehrig became the New York Yankees' starting first baseman, which marked the start of his remarkable streak of consecutive games played. It also serves as a reminder of the day he passed away due to complications of ALS. In 2021, Major League Baseball made Lou Gehrig Day official, a time to pay tribute to those courageously battling ALS and honor the memory of all who have lost their battle to this devastating disease.
