Today in 1925, Lou Gehrig hit the first of his 23 grand slams. 

Anyone want to take a swing at getting him connected? laugh

I added his wife and a few bio details.

Karen and I were able to add some additional family to his wife, and there should be a connection that will show up tomorrow.
Good work guys!

I believe I have a connection that should show up tonight. His wife's brother had a short marriage with a famous WASP who had a nicely done profile already on WikiTree that fortunately was already connected. It took a little wrangling to prove it was the right person, but I'm convinced that the tertiary news articles stating their relationship in a rather vague way are accurate.

I added a bit of his wife's Eleanor's tree that should pull him another 4-6 degrees closer. Let's see!

Today Lou is 36 degrees from Emily Brontë29 degrees from Steven Tibbetts and 27 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
