This Day in Baseball History:
May 2, 1939 > Lou Gehrig's streak of 2,130 consecutive games comes to an end. An ailing Gehrig removes himself from the lineup, telling manager Joe McCarthy that he cannot play because of continuing weakness. Doctors will later diagnose Gehrig with ALS, a fatal disease that affects the muscles. The Iron Horse will never play again.
