Mr Runs Batted In, Lou Gehrig

Mr Runs Batted In, Lou Gehrig

Whenever I think of Lou Gehrig, I think of power, consistency and most of all runs batted in. Lou was in business. His business was driving in runs. He had a thriving production company. He had seven years where his business surpassed 150 RBIs in that year.. And his RBIs per game is still the highest percentage in major league history at .921 runs driven in per game. From 1930 to 1934 he knocked in 813 runs. Averaging 162 rbis per season. More than one rbi per game.

Whenever I look at Lou Gehrig's statistics I find something new about the man. Like the number of triples he hit. Being a Yankee fan as I was growing up, anything connected with the Yanks caught my eye. When I saw "Pride of The Yankees," with Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright I found another hero.

Gary Cooper's portrayal of Lou Gehrig was that of a strong, focused and


quiet man. I related I was very quiet as a kid. His success made me feel good. I was so proud that I liked the Yankees because Lou Gehrig was a part of my team. You did not get any better than Lou. Lou Gehrig has been an inspiration for me. I look at what he has accomplished in his baseball life. I am amazed. I have seen film of Lou batting without a shirt on. As his muscles rip as he swings the bat I am reminded of his awesome power and strength.
