Here comes the 70th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s famous speech announcing that he was leaving baseball because he had ALS. Here comes Doug to throw out the first pitch on June 26th at the Cub’s game at Wrigley Field. The famous speech was made at Yankee Stadium, where a game will be in action as Doug swims past on June 28th, in the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, as he raises money for ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
