PHOTO 70 - TOMBSTONE OF LOU GEHRIG - Kensico Cemetery, Valhalla, NY

In keeping with the baseball theme, today's post is the tombstone of the "Iron Horse," Lou Gehrig. A real man's man and a great ballplayer, Lou's life was cut short by the disease that now bears his name (otherwise known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS). Lou and his wife were cremated and I believe their cremains rest in the metal chamber above the last name. You can also see that scores of baseball fans have visited Lou's grave.
