New York Yankees fans are going to love FOCO’s newest limited-edition bobblehead, featuring the great Lou Gehrig.
In 1903, Lou Gehrig was born in New York, New York. Specifically, Yorkville. By the time Gehrig made it to the Majors, the New York Yankees were playing in Yankee Stadium – just 20 minutes from Yorkville.
The hometown kid never disappointed, either.
Looking at old-timey baseball stats is often mind-boggling. Sure, the game was different back then. But it’s a different level of amazing when you look at what Gehrig did over the course of his 17-year career.
Gehrig’s career batting average is .340. He won two MVP Awards and six World Series titles. He drove in 150+ runs in eight different seasons. And of course from June 1, 1925 through April 30, 1939 he played in 2,130 consecutive games.
Which brings us to the ‘Iron Horse’ moniker and FOCO’s latest bobblehead. Check it out below.
