Fourth of July, 2010 marked the 71st anniversary of the baseball legend, Lou Gehrig's Farewell Speech. Current Yankees and staff honored him with this video that played before the game. In case you were wondering, this game ended by a single hit by Marcus Thames in the bottom of then tenth, allowing a run to score and a Yankees walk-off victory. 7-6 Brett Gardner also hit a inside-the-park-homerun in the game against the Toronto BlueJays.

The 4 ALS Tribute to Henry Lou Gehrig. July 4th, 2009 on the 70th anniversary of his speech: Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth. I have been in ballparks for seventeen years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. "Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn't consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day? Sure, I'm lucky. Who wouldn't consider it an honor to have known Jacob Ruppert? Also, the builder of baseball's greatest empire, Ed Barrow? To have spent six years with that wonderful little fellow, Miller Huggins? Then to have spent the next nine years with that outstanding leader, that smart student of psychology, the best manager in baseball today, Joe McCarthy? Sure, I'm lucky. "When the New York Giants, a team you would give your right arm to beat, and vice versa, sends you a gift - that's something. When everybody down to the groundskeepers and those boys in white coats remember you with trophies - that's something. When you have a wonderful mother-in-law who takes sides with you in squabbles with her own daughter - that's something. When you have a father and a mother who work all their lives so you can have an education and build your body - it's a blessing. When you have a wife who has been a tower of strength and shown more courage than you dreamed existed - that's the ...
