Lou Gehrig Speech - Farewell to Baseball Address
Lou Gehrig - Farewell to Baseball Address
"...I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth."
Delivered on 4 July 1939, New York

Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about a bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.

I have been in ballparks for seventeen years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldnít consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day?

Sure Iím lucky.

Who wouldnít consider it an honor to have known Jacob Ruppert? Also, the builder of baseballís greatest empire, Ed Barrow? To have spent six years with that wonderful little fellow, Miller Huggins? Then to have spent the next nine years with that outstanding leader, that smart student of psychology, the best manager in baseball today, Joe McCarthy?

Sure Iím lucky.

When the New York Giants, a team you would give your right arm to beat, and vice versa, sends you a gift - thatís something. When everybody down to the groundskeepers and those boys in white coats remember you with trophies -- thatís something.

When you have a wonderful mother-in-law who takes sides with you in squabbles with her own daughter -- thatís something.

When you have a father and a mother who work all their lives so you can have an education and build your body -- itís a blessing.

When you have a wife who has been a tower of strength and shown more courage than you dreamed existed -- thatís the finest I know.

So, I close in saying that I might have been given a bad break, but I've got an awful lot to live for.
