    Vernon Wells Didn’t Make The Catch, But Boy Did He Try (Video)

    It was on this day in 1933 that Lou Gehrig played in his 1,308th consecutive game.  Gehrig surpassed the mark set by shortstop Everett Scott, who established the record in 1925. There were a few instances during the streak where Gehrig came awfully close to missing a game.  In 1933, Lou was struck in the […]
