MLB® The Show™ 22 commemorates this 2nd Annual Lou Gehrig Day with the Lou Gehrig Program. Today we celebrate the “Iron Horse,” Lou Gehrig, for his undeniable impact on the game of baseball and his contributions towards ending Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), otherwise known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease.” Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig joins fellow Baseball Legends Jackie Robinson and Roberto Clemente as the only players whose legacies are celebrated annually with dedicated, league-wide days. June 2nd was specifically chosen as the date for Lou Gehrig Day as it marks when Gehrig became the Yankees starting first baseman, thus cementing the start of his incredible streak of consecutive games played, as well as the day he passed from complications of ALS.
Starting today, relive some of Gehrig’s most iconic plays in the Lou Gehrig Program Moments. Earn the Diamond All-Star Lou Gehrig and Diamond All-Star Salvador Perez (2022’s Lou Gehrig Memorial Award recipient) player items, the Lou Gehrig Day Bat grip and Bat skin equipment items, plus a Headliners Set – 9 Pack, and multiple The Show Packs in the program rewards’ path.Tags: MLB The Show 22
