Gehrig bat up for auction
NEW YORK — The bat Lou Gehrig used to hit his last two home runs, in an exhibition game in 1939, is being auctioned off again.
Once owned by actor Kurt Russell’s family, the bat is part of a Yankees Legends offering by Heritage Auctions. The entire collection is from one owner and has mostly of Yankeesrelated memorabilia, including a bat used by Roger Maris in the 1961 season when he hit a then-record 61 homer. The online auction opened Tuesday and closes Dec. 10.
