Joe DiMaggio's 56-Game Hitting Streak Started Today

New, comments

One of the most famous records in American sports began on this day 70 years ago. Joe DiMaggio hit a measly single against the White Sox in a 13-1 Yankees loss. He would go on to hit in another 55 straight games.

We're going to feature a widget on the sidebar of Pinstripe Alley, similar to the one for Derek Jeter, telling you what DiMaggio did in each of the next 55 games back in 1941.
