17 Signatures in Lou Gehrig's guestbook

  1. Jay redd Says:

    One of the greatest baseball players and human beings of all time.

  2. Ben Says:

    ily man i wanted to fuck u up the ass

  3. A mature grown-up Says:

    First of all,”Ben,” this is why they told you to pay attention in class “Ben”, because today, at whatever (physical, if not psychological) age you are, you’d know some clean words that actual grown-ups use. Hey, tough guy, why don’t you put your address or phone and full name on here so we can let you know how impressed we all are by you. If you don’t, then no matter how hatefuls or mean or filthy what you respond with is, it will just prove one thing to the rest of us: you’re a coward. So knock yourself out. Go hide behind the anonymity of the Internet, that really takes a lot of guts, huh? Do you realize kids read this site and see what you wrote. That must make you very prooud, huh? Probably not even your real name.

    The man who is usually the answer to the trivia question “who did Lou Gehrig replace” is of course, Wally Pipp.

    What many people don’t know is that Pipp played most of, not all but most of the games over nine seasons before Lou replaced him. Pipp had a lifetime BA of .281 (good in any era) led the American League in home runs in back-to-back seasons, hit .300 three times, had nearly 150 triples and 125 stolen bases (both while playing FIRST BASE), had just under 1,000 runs and rbi’s too.

    All while being well above league averages with the glove.

    Not the great Lou Gehrig, but certainly much more than the answer to a trivia question.

    By the way, the player most comparable to him at age 22 is Daric Barton, from Springfield, VT, who plays first on Oakland.
