Following grassroots efforts by the ALS community that resulted in support from all Major League Baseball teams, the MLB announced that it will be recognizing Lou Gehrig Day every year on June 2, starting in 2021 – exactly 80 years after his death from complications due to ALS.

This page brings together the Canadian ALS community’s thoughts on Gehrig’s legacy, what it means to see the MLB hold an annual Lou Gehrig Day, and other baseball connections that unite us.
