A Boy, A Bat, And A Legend


Lou Gehrig's Bat From 1939

The boy involved is Bing Russell, father of actor Kurt Russell and grandfather of Matt Franco. The legend is Lou Gehrig. And the bat (pictured above) was the last bat Gehrug ever hit a home run with. How the bat came to be in Russell’s possession (along with a two other bats) is a must read story over at The Postseason.
