I Didn't Think Lou Gehrig Would Do That

On this day in 1933 Lou Gehrig and manager Joe McCarthy were thrown out of a game.  The manager was suspended for three games but Gehrig wasn't.  Had Gehrig been suspended the consecutive games streak would have ended.

I haven't found records of how many times Gehrig was ejected from games but I am searching for it.
There were some other moments that could have ended the streak.  I will address those some other time.  Tomorrow I'm going to talk about players riding their bicycles.
