Imagine that one of the greatest baseball players ever had to retire due to a life threatening condition, later to be named after him. That was what happened to the legendary Lou Gehrig. Lou Gehrig was a renowned baseball player for the New York Yankees in the early 1920’s. The “Iron Horse” as he was known, was forced to retire at a young age due to a life threatening disease called ALS and often known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Gehrig was a slugger and was loved by fans for not only for his ability to hit the ball out of the park, but also for his social influence in baseball. His social impact was seen the most at the end of his career when he delivered a speech, changing the lives of everyone at the ballpark that day. Gehrig appeals to pathos, ethos and uses repetition in order to thank the fans and convince the public that he is not to be pitied.

Imagine how devastating it would be to be unable to play the sport you love because of an illness. For professional baseball player Lou Gehrig, that is exactly what happened. Gehrig played baseball for the New York Yankees from 1923 to 1939 (“Biography”). At the end of his baseball career he was diagnosed with a disease called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS. ALS is a neurological disease that attacks the body’s neurons that control voluntary muscle movement (“Amyotrophic”). In this heartfelt speech, Lou Gehrig expresses his gratitude for all of the positive things that have occured in his life, despite his recent diagnosis of ALS, in order to convey that he is still lucky even though he is now unable to play baseball.
On July 4, 1939, at the Yankee Stadium a man conveyed a standout amongst the most moving and powerful addresses. He was substantially more gifted on the baseball field as opposed to conveying speeches. His name is Lou Gehrig's in his 272 word speech which lasted about two minutes. Gehrig's farewell speech included rhetorical stratigies. Gehrig firmly used ethos and pathos to state his case. Gehrig strongly utilized ethos and pathos to assert his claim. Ethos and pathos are the two appeals combined that allowed him to establish himself as a self-effacing and thankful man who believed, he was nothing but lucky to have been given the opportunities in life that he had been given. In spite of Gehrig's hardships all through life he stayed devoted to baseball, faithful to his fans,

Living in Cascade, Idaho, I am familiar with going out and getting wood to keep us from freezing to death. Last year when we went to get wood, it was in the winter. I refused to go and work in the snow so I just pretended to be sleeping. The trick didn’t always work, but most of the time it did. My uncle is a logger, so he tells me crazy stories, like almost falling off a cliff, dragging heavy chains up big hills, giant boulders, and lots of medical bills. Working as a logger is a career I would never choose to work because, I’m not fit for all that heavy lifting. Loggers have to wake up early and do these activities all day, everyday, which is a very dangerous lifestyle.
