July 4, 2014 marks the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig's "Luckiest Man" speech. He died of ALS in 1941.
Classy move by the Yankees last night for Mariano Rivera's last appearance at Yankee Stadium in New York. Nice to see one of the class acts in baseball go out like this.
After a line drive hit from Robinson Cano, Ichiro Suzuki scored from first base but, only after some acrobatic moves at home plate.
Looks like he was shagging fly balls in the outfield when his knee popped on the warning track. As much as I hate the Yankees, I hate to see anyone injured like that, especially to someone who's at the end of their career.
