On May 10, 1934, an ailing Lou Gehrig removes himself from the New York Yankees’ lineup after five innings. Despite feeling ill, Gehrig maintains his “Iron Horse” playing streak and bangs out two home runs, two doubles and seven RBI before leaving the game. The Yanks top the White Sox, 13 – 3. During the game Ben Chapman shouts racial remarks at a Jewish fan. In 1947, he will lead the dugout bigots in protest of Jackie Robinson.
