This was filmed in January, 1938. A team of doctors viewed this film in 2006 to see if there is any visible evidence of the onset of Gehrig's ALS. They concluded that they could see no effect. Gehrig put up good, though diminished, numbers in the 1938 season that followed, and had visible muscle loss by the beginning of training in 1939. He died 3 1/2 years after his performance here.
