Lou Gehrig's first game in long-streak...

Item # 579433

June 3, 1925

FITCHBURG SENTINEL, Fitchburg, Massachusetts, June 3, 1925

* Lou Gehrig plays in 1st of 2,130 games in a row
* New York Yankees - Major league baseball

This 22 page newspaper has a two column headline on page 8: "Yanks Check Serious Slump With Victory Over Senators" with text that includes: "...Four veteran New York stars viewed the rally from the bench... and ...Gehrig was at first..."

This was when Wally Pipp was replaced with a young Lou Gehrig which would be the first game played in his famous 2,130 game streak.

Other news of the day. Light browning, otherwise good.
