Lou Gehrig Plays His Final Game

On April 3, 1939, Lou Gehrig played his last game for the New York Yankees. The Iron Horse went 0 for 4 against the Washington Senators in a 3-2 Yankee loss. The Hall of Fame first baseman concludes his career with 490 home runs, and a lifetime batting average of .340. He played in a record 2,130 consecutive games. A record that was held until broken by the Baltimore Orioles Cal Ripken Jr.
