ESPN Feature on Lou Gehrig and Mayo Clinic

By Lee Aase

ESPN has produced an "Outside the Lines" story about baseball hall-of-famer Lou Gehrig based on the correspondence he and his wife had with his Mayo Clinic physician in the years following his retirement from baseball and his diagnosis with ALS, the disease that later came to bear his name. The video story and copies of the letters are available here on the Web.
