A former college professor who was diagnosed with ALS was watching his life disappear before his eyes. Then he went to a baseball fantasy camp and realized he wanted to do something positive with his remaining life. He turned to Major League Baseball for help raising money for the disease that also took Lou Gehrig’s life and led to the famous speech at Yankee Stadium 70 years ago Saturday. “I consider myself to be the luckiest man in the world.”
Every baseball park in America participated yesterday raising the funds through auctions and raising awareness with ceremonies.
