Since 1984, the Phillies have raised almost $12.7 million for The ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapter's patient services and research. ALS, a progressive neuromuscular disease, is also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease" after the Yankee first baseman who succumbed to this devastating neurological disease that now bears his name.
