Professor Michael Goldsmith‘s article “Batting for the Cure” was recently published in Newsweek. The article is a call for Major League Baseball to assist in fundraising efforts to find a cure for Lou Gehrig’s Disease by making July 4, 2009 (the 70th anniversary of Gehrig’s famous farewell speech), ALS-Lou Gehrig Day. Professor Goldsmith’s proposal and his own battle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease were discussed in a New York Times article, “Fighting a Disease to Honor a Legend,” today.

UPDATE: After I posted this, KSL released a news interview with Professor Goldsmith. Click here to see the video and/or read the transcript.
