This is footage of the legendary Yankee first baseman giving his "Luckiest Man On The Face Of The Earth" farewell speech on 7/4/39, interspersed with first basemen of today reciting parts of his speech. He was 36. He had already been diagnosed with ALS, now more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. He would pass away 6/2/41, less than two years later. After he was done, Babe Ruth enveloped him in a hug and the crowd cheered for over two minutes.
