Lou Gehrig: A role model for the Giants?


The San Francisco Giants have been cursed with a number of injuries, some of them seemingly minor. Maybe they should look at the great Lou Gehrig as a role model:

Set a record by playing in a consecutive streak of 2,130 professional baseball games throughout his career, despite 17 fractures in his hands, being beaned several times, having severe back pain and suffering various other illnesses and minor injuries. Gehrig's record stood until Cal Ripken, Jr. broke it in 1995.
