LOU GEHRIG by Frank Graham


Email this review


Yet another biography of the famous baseball player, written by an old newspaper man who has seen ball players come and go, and who writes with feeling, admiration and love of that great Yankee star whose record was outstanding and whose life was an inspiration. He shows us Gehrig the kid in High School, at Columbia, in his early days of professional ball. Then his coming to the Yankees and his rise to stardom. He catches the spirit of Gehrig, modest, hardworking, fun loving, cooperative, courageous. This is the best of the Lou Gehrig books. Plus sales for boys.
