Lou Gehrig played his last baseball game on June 12, 1939. Paul and I discussed his great career on Episode 97 of the podcast. I hope to write a few posts on Gehrig over the next few weeks because he lived a fascinating life.
For today, I'll link to an interview that we played on the podcast. It was recorded two months after he announced his retirement and ALS diagnosis. Included within are Gehrig's thoughts on night baseball, a players' union, the All-Star game, and the three best players in baseball history. As promised before the interview, Gehrig was not asked about his health.
Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
