Lou Gehrig was nicknamed the Iron Horse. He was nicknamed the Iron Horse because of his strength and not missing games even though Lou was injured and ill at times. He went on to hold the record for consecutive games played with 2,130 appearances. He benched himself May 2nd 1939. Of course, this record was broken by Cal Ripken on September 6th 1995.

If fans called him by a nickname, it was rarely Larrupin' Lou. Fun fact: Cal Ripken's nickname was "The Iron Man" while Lou's was "The Iron Horse" The person who asked this question is correct. Lou Gehrig was also nicknamed Larrupin' Lou.
