Study Says Brain Trauma Can Mimic Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

A perfect companion to my posting on Babe Ruth yesterday.

The Iron Horse may have had a condition associated with brain trauma instead of A.L.S. He was known to play through injuries and had many concussions during his time, which may have contributed to his condition. It may be too late to know for sure, but definitely interesting none the less.
