I believe FA means Lou Gehrig.

Quote:
Baseball player. Born June 19, 1903, in New York City. Regarded as one of the greatest baseball players of all time, Lou Gehrig appeared in a record 2,130 consecutive games for the New York Yankees before he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease."
On June 2, 1925, a husky, young baseball player named Lou Gehrig faced another day on the New York Yankee bench as back-up first baseman to veteran Wally Pipp. Frustrated at not being able to play every day, the promising but unproven rookie had repeatedly begged manager Miller Huggins to send him back to the minors. Huggins refused, pointing out that Gehrig still had a lot to learn about baseball, and one of the best ways to do that was by watching his fellow players. Then fate intervened: Pipp developed a headache after being hit on the head by a pitch during batting practice, and Huggins tapped an eager but nervous Gehrig to replace him in the lineup. By the end of the day, he had thrilled the crowd by posting a double, two singles, a run, eight putouts, and one assist. And for the next fourteen years, the only player at first base for the Yankees was Lou Gehrig, a man honored not only for his athletic skills but also for his modesty, perseverance, and courage in the face of the devastating illness that ended his brilliant career.

Born and raised in a poor, overcrowded New York City neighborhood, Henry Louis Gehrig was the son of German immigrants Heinrich and Christina Gehrig. He began playing baseball at the age of five after receiving a catcher's mitt for Christmas. Although he was left-handed and the mitt was for a right-hander, Gehrig became skilled enough by the time he reached seventh grade to play not only on his school team but also in the city's parks and recreation department league.

A strong-willed woman who labored as a cook and a maid and took in laundry to help support her family, Christina Gehrig wanted more than anything for Lou to get a good education. So, at an age when many of his friends left the classroom to go to work, Gehrig went on to high school, where he was expected to give up baseball and prepare himself for college. After doing well in his pre-engineering courses, he persuaded his mother that he could study and play sports, too. He went out for both soccer and baseball, performing rather miserably in the latter until he tried using a left-handed glove for the first time. He soon improved enough to become the starting first baseman for the team.

By his senior year, Gehrig was one of his school's best all-around athletes, turning in solid performances in baseball, football, basketball, soccer, and gymnastics. His proudest moment came when his baseball team won the New York City championship and went on to a high school world series contest in Chicago. The New Yorkers beat the Chicagoans, thanks in part to Gehrig's ninth-inning grand-slam home run.

After graduation, Gehrig enrolled at Columbia University and continued to play baseball. It was at one of his college games in April, 1923, that he first captured the attention of a Yankee scout when he hit a game-winning home run that sailed completely out of the field and landed some 450 yards away on the library steps. Against his mother's wishes, he left school two months later and signed with the Yankees, then winners of two consecutive American League pennants and boasting a strong lineup that included slugger Babe Ruth, one of Gehrig's idols.

His first two years with the Yankees gave little hint that Gehrig would one day become one of baseball's best players. While his hitting was strong, his knowledge of defensive positioning, pitching strategies, base-running techniques, and other aspects of the game was almost nonexistent. As Paul Gallico noted in a Reader's Digest article, Gehrig was also "awkward inept and downright clumsy"--in short, far from a natural talent. He listened, watched, and absorbed all he could, but his youth and inexperience kept him in the minors, where he worked to perfect his swing and put in more playing time at first base.

Then came the 1925 season, which opened with Gehrig determined to make the team. After his big break came on that June day when Wally Pipp was hit by an errant pitch, Gehrig hustled to prove that he deserved to stay in the lineup. He worked hard on his game and finished his first full season with the Yankees with a .295 average and 21 home runs. Despite Gehrig's contributions, the Yankees finished a disappointing seventh in the pennant race, primarily because Babe Ruth sat out most of the year.

The 1926 season saw the fortunes of both Gehrig and the Yankees improve. Batting fourth as part of the so-called "Murderers' Row" lineup of powerhouse hitters (which included Ruth), Gehrig raised his average to .313, launching the first of twelve consecutive seasons in which he hit .300 or better. In addition, the Yankees recovered from their poor finish the year before to capture the American League pennant and take the St. Louis Cardinals to seven games in a losing effort to win the World Series.

For most of the next decade, the Yankees dominated baseball, racking up five World Series victories and posting phenomenal individual and team statistics. Gehrig, a veritable "first-base-covering machine," to quote Gallico, usually held the number two or three position in every major category, including overall batting average, home runs, and runs batted in (RBIs), and on four occasions he was voted the American League's Most Valuable Player. Probably his best year was 1934, when he led the league with a .363 average, 49 home runs, and 165 RBIs, beating out Babe Ruth for the first time since joining the Yankees. Yet his lack of self-confidence always made him question his true abilities and fear that failure was just around the corner. And as a shy, soft-spoken, and extremely modest man, he was no match for Ruth, whose flamboyance generated headlines in a way Gehrig never did. He labored quietly in Ruth's formidable shadow until 1936, when he began playing second fiddle to a new Yankee sensation, Joe DiMaggio. Consequently, Gehrig never experienced the adulation of the fans in the way that some of his flashier teammates did.

Durable and dependable, Gehrig came to be known as the "Iron Horse" for his apparent indifference to pain and fatigue. He played day in and day out, through illness and injury (including a concussion on one occasion and severe back pain on another), and on August 17, 1933, he passed the major-league record for consecutive games played (1,307). After that, Gehrig did not allow himself to be X-rayed following an injury because he was afraid doctors might find a chip or a break that would force him to sit out for a while. Several years later, X rays of his hands revealed that he had indeed suffered seventeen fractures that had healed by themselves.

In 1938, Gehrig's consecutive-games streak hit two thousand. But at mid-season, he went into a hitting slump that he couldn't seem to shake. In addition, his coordination began to fail, his hands trembled, and he often felt overwhelmed by fatigue. Yet he refused to miss a game, and consequently he experienced one of his poorest seasons ever: a .295 average, 29 home runs, and 114 RBIs.

With the opening of the next season, it was clear that even a winter of rest had not cured his slump. He continued to display physical symptoms that affected both his fielding and his hitting. While the fans assumed the thirty-six-year-old Gehrig was just showing signs of age, his teammates knew that it was not normal for a good ballplayer to lose all of his skills at once; they suspected something else far more serious behind his sudden clumsiness. Meanwhile, Gehrig privately battled fear and depression as he watched his game deteriorate despite the fact that he relentlessly drove himself to work harder. Finally, on May 2, realizing that he was more of a hindrance than a help to the team, Gehrig voluntarily benched himself, ending his consecutive-game streak at 2,130.

In June, Gehrig went to the Mayo Clinic, where doctors quickly diagnosed the source of his difficulties as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a rare, degenerative condition affecting the spinal cord that leads to muscular weakness throughout the body and death within two to four years. Returning to New York, Gehrig calmly remarked to reporters, "I guess I have to accept the bitter with the sweet. If this is the finish, I'll take it."

On July 4 of that year, more than sixty thousand fans and dozens of players, officials, sportswriters, and political dignitaries gathered in Yankee Stadium for Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day. The veteran first baseman was showered with gifts, and speaker after speaker rose to pay tribute to his kindness and decency and express appreciation for the thrills he had given to baseball lovers for so many years. There to salute him, too, were his former teammates from the 1927 world champion Yankees. At first, Gehrig was too overwhelmed to speak, but the crowd chanted: "We want Gehrig!" He stepped to the microphone, blowing his nose and rubbing his eyes. Cap in hand, he spoke: "Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about a bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. I have been in ballparks for 17 years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn't consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day? ... When you have a father and mother who work all their lives so that you can have an education and build your body, it's a blessing. When you have a wife who has been a tower of strength and shown more courage than you dreamed existed, that's the finest I know. So I close in saying that I might have had a bad break, but I have an awful lot to live for. Thank you."

Gehrig served out the rest of the Yankees' 1939 season as the team's nonplaying captain. In an unprecedented move, the baseball writers waived the normal five year waiting period and at the end of the year voted him into the Hall of Fame. By then, Gehrig had accepted an offer from New York mayor Fiorello La Guardia to serve on the city's parole board and work with young people in trouble with the law.

A year later, however, he had to give up even that job when he became too weak and exhausted to go into the office. He fell into a coma and died at home on the evening of June 2, 1941, just two weeks short of his thirty-eighth birthday. The next day, flags flew at half-mast in New York City and at baseball stadiums around the country in honor of the man who, at the time he was forced to retire from the game he loved, held forty-five batting, fielding, and endurance records. While many of those records have since been broken, the endurance record still stands in testimony to the dedication of the "Iron Horse."



I hope that answers your question...sufficiently.

Sandy has the right idea.

FA, you could just stop talking to him and stop the sex, and start dating other men. It would be a lot more emotionally troubling (therefore getting back at him) and you wouldn't have any papers.
yay?
