Joe DiMaggio

1914- 1999

American Athlete

Baseball legend Joe DiMaggio's entire career was played out with the New York Yankees, where he represented a singular kind of athletic grace and dignity.

His hit streak of 56 games thrilled the nation in 1941. In his thirteen seasons, the Yankees played in the World Series 10 times and won 9 of them. Voted Most Valuable Player in the American League three times, DiMaggio was considered perhaps the best centerfielder to ever play the game. His lifetime batting average was .325.
