First basemen, new and old

This morning, I finished reading Iron Horse: Lou Gehrig in his Time. It didn't even occur to me that today is May 2nd -- the 66th anniversary of the day Lou Gehrig took himself out of the Yankees lineup and ended his 2,130 consecutive game streak.

This evening, before the Mariners game, they announced over the speaker that John Olerud signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox. I hope he gets back up to speed and ends up playing in the major leagues again soon!
