More Episodes

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #450.

We all know that music, and as part of our Art of Living, author interview series, our guest today is baseball writer, historian, Alan Gaff. Alan Gaff is author of the new book, The Lost Memoir of Lou Gehrig.

I loved the book, and for those of us eager to have baseball back in our lives, but watching Korean Baseball Organization’s brand of high energy baseball, and hoping baseball will return soon, you’ll love this book, too.

Lou Gehrig, one of the greatest baseball players that ever lived, is so much more than the horrible disease that killed him. The first half of this book is told by Lou Gehrig in his own words through articles he wrote during his championship season in New York City. To be able to read Gehrig’s words describing his entrance into professional baseball was priceless. I’ll offer my thanks to our guest today, Alan D. Gaff, right now for collecting these forgotten newspaper columns.

That, of course, is our guest today, Alan Gaff reading from his new book, Lou Gehrig, The Lost Memoir. And we heard the famous farewell speech by Lou Gehrig at Yankee Stadium, a baseball legend.

Scott Boras, an attorney for baseball players, wrote a recent editorial in The NY Times, in which he said so eloquently, “In some of America’s darkest moments, the country has turned to Major League Baseball to bring hope and normalcy back to everyday life. It is time again for baseball to serve. The millions of baseball fans in America can continue to do a small part for the nation by staying at home while enjoying a sense of hope and normalcy and watching the game we love.”

In the meantime, we can enjoy Alan Gaff’s new book, The Lost Memoir of Lou Gehrig.

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show via internet phone, author Alan Gaff.
