Lou Gehrig was a baseball player,
Hitting baseballs hard and true!
Received kudos from the mayor,
The crowds loved him too!
One day he dropped his baseball cap,
It slipped right out of his hand.
When Lou Gehrig stepped up to bat,
He found he could barely stand.
Most people call it Lou Gehrig's disease,
Some call it A L S.
It has no borders, no sympathies,
It kills whom it decides to caress.
It's caused its share of pain and suffering,
Leaving everyone in the dark.
It's time to pick up Lou Gehrig's old bat,
And knock ALS out of the park!
