520    "The lost memoir from baseball icon Lou Gehrig-a major 
       historical discovery, published for the first time as a 
       book, with "color commentary" from historian Alan Gaff. In
       1927, the legendary Lou Gehrig sat down to write the 
       remarkable story of his life and career. He was at his 
       peak, fresh off a record-breaking season with the fabled 
       '27 World Series champion Yankees. It was an era unlike 
       any other. Gehrig's personal remembrances were published 
       that year as popular weekly columns in The Oakland 
       Tribune. Until now, those pages were lost to history. Lou 
       comes alive in his captivating memoir. It is a heartfelt 
       rags-to-riches tale about a poor kid from New York who 
       grew up to become one of the greatest. He takes us to his 
       childhood home, to Columbia University where he flashed as
       a prospect, all the way to the dugout at Yankee Stadium 
       where he recounts his first major league hit and bonding 
       with Babe Ruth. There is a real poignancy to this tale. 
       Built like a heavyweight boxer, "Iron Horse" Lou was one 
       of the most powerful men to play the game. Off the field 
       he was a shy, gentle soul. He would die prematurely from 
       ALS, a degenerative neuromuscular disorder now known as 
       Lou Gehrig's Disease. Here is Lou back at bat-Hall of 
       Famer, All Star, and MVP. Lou Gehrig is a monument and 
       tribute to a singular life and career"--|cProvided by
