Ear up the Lou Gehrig podcast (36:37) This episode is very clean for your children’s ears.

Pride Of The Yankees 3

To honour baseball’s 2016 Opening Day, we cover a genial biopic about the remarkable Lou Gehrig. Gary Cooper is solid as the Iron Horse who loves 2 things above all else: baseball & his devoted wife Eleanor (Teresa Wright). It’s no Bull Durham, but this ancient baseball movie exudes class & character. Pop over to Sparkplug Coffee before you hear the Ellises play ball!
