DiMaggio’s Consecutive Hitting Streak Ended 75 Years Ago Tomorrow
DiMaggio’s Consecutive Hitting Streak Ended 75 Years Ago Tomorrow
The year was 1941.  Americans were preoccupied with World War Two going on in Europe.  Nerves were on edge and Americans needed something or someone to do something positive.  That someone turned out to be Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees. Baseball was an escape from the pressures of war and people were following both the war and the game that summer especially because of DiMaggio.
