Best Answer

Wally Pipp was the Yankees' first baseman who took a day off in 1925 because of a headache (disputed reason). Lou Gehrig replaced him in the lineup and started 2,130 consecutive games from there. So when ever a good athlete in a sport gets injured and is replaced by a potential star, people refer to the injured athlete as being Wally Pipped.
