So What Did Lou Gehrig Die Of?

If you believe the latest research, Lou Gehrig might not have died of the disease that was sort of named after him. Gehrig was believed to have died in 1941 of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

The Boston Globe has more.

We will likely never know the truth because Gehrig was cremated. His remains are in Kensico Cemetery in Valhalla, NY - just a short drive from the burial site of his Murderers' Row brother, Babe Ruth.
