MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Some Minnesota lawmakers are
looking to force the release of Lou Gehrig's medical records, saying
they might provide insight into whether the Yankees star died of the
disease that now bears his name or from repetitive head trauma.
Their effort comes despite
opposition from Mayo Clinic, which holds the records, and skepticism
from experts that the records would prove anything.
Rep. Phyllis Kahn, a
self-described baseball fanatic, concedes the records "probably won't
show anything" but says they're worth a look.
The Minneapolis Democrat became
intrigued after reading about a study in 2010 that suggested a potential
link between repetitive brain trauma in athletes and ALS. She and other
lawmakers want to change state law to allow release of health records
of patients who have been dead more than 50 years.
