Celebrate July 4th with the Brigance Brigade Foundation!
Monday, July 4, 2016 marks the 77th anniversary of Lou Gehrig's speech at Yankee stadium when he announced his retirement from baseball due to his recent diagnosis with ALS. Gehrig noted, “I might have been given a bad break, but I’ve got an awful lot to live for…” – “77 years after Lou Gehrig spoke those inspirational words, O.J. Brigance defines their meaning.” (MASN)
