Lou Gehrig's 14 Amazing Years

He got his break when long-time Yankees first baseman Wally Pipp had a headache and decided to take a seat and “let the kid play.” The “kid” was Lou Gehrig. After Gehrig stepped onto the field on June 2, 1925, he wouldn’t miss a game for the next 14 years. It was the start of a consecutive game streak that would earn him an impressive record: seven seasons with 150 or more RBI’s, eight seasons with 200 or more hits and five seasons with more than 40 home runs. The World Series champion’s streak ended May 2, 1939 when he asked to be taken out of the lineup.
