Don’t end up like Wally Pipp – Grit
Most people don’t know who Wally Pipp was. However, most people, and just about every baseball fan, have heard of Lou Gehrig.
In 1925, Wally Pipp was the first baseman for the New York Yankees. As the legend goes, Wally Pipp had a headache that day. “I can’t play today Hug”, Wally told the Yankees manager, Walter Huggins. Huggins put in a rookie named Lou Gehrig. Gehrig didn’t come out of the starting lineup for another 2,130 games and became the Iron Man of baseball.
