Was it normal for baseball players to drink beer and smoke cigarettes in the dugout? Here's a photo from LIFE magazine's archive, showing Lou Gehrig doing just that in 1936; three years later he would leave the Yankees after being diagnosed with a degenerative muscle disease that would come to be known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease." (Incidentally, it was recently linked to smoking.)

In the 80's it was still common to smoke and drink in the clubhouse, they would smoke between innings and hang together after the game in the clubhouse drinking talking about the game, times really have changed..... Gehrig is still the man.
