Adam LaRoche Joins MLB Players Honoring The 75th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s Farewell Speech

As we approach the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech, in which he announced his retirement from baseball following his ALS diagnosis, MLB has put together this wonderful video. Gehrig starts it off, and then it intersperses a number of current major leaguers, each reading a few words from the iconic speech. Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche appears in the video, along side guys like Chris Davis, Albert Pujols, Joe Mauer, and Derek Jeter. This is worth watching, and if you’re like me, it’s worth having a tissue nearby when you do.
