Lou Gehrig's ancestory is German; both of his parents were born in Germany. According to Jonathan Eig in his book Luckiest Man: "He (Lou) had not been raised on literature or even on the intellectual concepts connected with organized religion. There is no indication that he or his parents ever practiced as Lutherans."

However, Gehrig was a parishioner of the Fourth Universalist Society of New York. So I presume he was a Universalist.

I can't post links, but the Wikipedia article on the Fourth Universalist Society confirms this.
