Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life
by Richard Ben Cramer
Reviewed by Paul Wysard Most of this book had been finished before the death of Joe DiMaggio in March, 1999. A final chapter, a scathing one, was added to review the postmortem and the mad scramble to sort out and control his assets. There was a lot of money, some of it garnered by The Hero as miser, but most of it resulting from the fabulous marketability of his name and signature. To the end, he protected those assets with the ferocity of a lion and manipulated memorabilia with the slyness of a fox. If you enjoy San Francisco, you will be entertained by the earlier portions of the book. The streets, the sounds, smells and sites of The City come alive as the youth of the future Yankee Clipper is spent hawking newspapers downtown, skipping and then dropping out of school, sneaking smokes, and successfully rooting into card games. He also played baseball with an inordinate natural talent which was refined at an incredibly fast pace. We revisit North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, the trolleys, Seals' Stadium, and the proud poverty of large portions of the Italian community of the '20s and '30s. When, at 18, he began to commit himself to a baseball career, which was not at all a "given" in his early life, his rise was meteoric. The 61 game hit streak and barely missing .400 with the Seals are landmarks. His loping speed and strong throwing arm were well-know within the scouting community. For those who wonder why DiMaggio did not happen to sign with any other of the 15 major league teams, the book is instructive. The Yankees were very interested, but so were many rivals. Colonel Ruppert had the money to pay the Seals' ownership, of course, but when we become more aware of DiMaggio's personality and expectations we realize he could not go to Cleveland or Detroit. It had to be New York.

Joe DiMaggio - an icon of American sport
Brian Barron looks back at Joe DiMaggio's life
Joe DiMaggio, one of the most famous figures in American sporting history, has died at the age of 84. The ex-New York Yankees baseball star and former husband of Marilyn Monroe had been suffering from lung cancer. The news was announced by DiMaggio's lawyer and friend for 59 years, Morris Engelberg, who had joined family and friends at the sporting legend's bedside at his home in Florida. "DiMaggio, the consummate gentleman on and off the field, fought his illness as hard as he played the game of baseball and with the same dignity, style and grace with which he lived his life," Engelberg said. He underwent surgery for lung cancer last October but suffered further complications and struggled to recover. DiMaggio was released from Florida's Memorial Regional Hospital last month after a 99-day stay that had been remarkable for the extent of press and TV coverage of his condition. He will be buried in San Francisco.

Joe jolts his
way to 56 #4 Classic Moment: July 17, 1941 By MICHAEL O'KEEFFE
DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER In the beginning, it didn't feel like a record that would still be standing - on a pedestal, unassailable. Didn't look like a standard of excellence that has been used to measure every great hitter since. No, on May 15, 1941, after several frustrating weeks at the plate, it simply looked like things had started to go right again for Joe DiMaggio. But when the streak ended two months later, on July 17, DiMaggio had hit safely in 56 games, a major league record that seems as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar. Pete Rose came close - sort of - with his 44-game hitting streak in 1978, and Luis Castillo had a nice 35-game streak last season. But even in an age where home run records seem to fall every season, Joltin' Joe's streak looks untouchable. But in the spring of 1941, DiMaggio wasn't thinking about history. The Yankees were in fourth place and DiMaggio, still frustrated by the Yankees' bad finish in 1940, started the season poorly, at one point hitting a meager .194 over 20 games. Some sportswriters said he was nervous because his wife, the actress Dorothy Arnold, was pregnant with their first child; others said he was anxious about the war that was raging in Europe. DiMaggio's frustration continued through the first part of the streak. He hit a single and drove in a run, but the Yankees lost, 13-1, thanks in part to his throwing error. DiMaggio seemed to regain his form the next day, when he hit a triple off the left field wall that sparked a 6-5 comeback win. But during the fourth game of the streak, he reached base twice on what could have been scored errors.

by Don Malcolm on March 6, 1999 last updated January 25, 2000 Send us feedback on this article A Brief Tribute to Joe DiMaggio Penetrating Joe DiMaggio's mystique will likely become a cottage industry in the next few years, as journalists attempt to do unto the Yankee Clipper what others have done to reclusive figures such as J.D. Salinger . At the storm center of tabloid culture during its inception in the fifties due to his brief marriage to Marilyn Monroe , Joe DiMaggio shunned publicity at a level that was clearly phobic. Now that DiMag can no longer protect himself, culture vultures will follow in the footsteps of Roger Kahn and look for as much dirt as they can find. Elsewhere, those of us who analyze baseball and make use of the melange of advanced statistics will be forced to explain that DiMaggio's legendary status as a ballplayer is a bit oversold. He was not perfection incarnate, as a generation of aging sportswriters have maintained as they ferociously cling to the myth of a post-war Golden Age of baseball. He was, by all accounts, a moody, conflicted, difficult and remote person who also possessed superlative baseball skills. All of these qualities contributed to his singular successes on the field and his decision to retire at the age of thirty-six, before his natural gifts deserted him. Perhaps the most astonishing fact in Joe DiMaggio's career is that he had not one, but

Joe DiMaggio
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Joe DiMaggio November 25 March 8 ) was an American baseball player. A "picture player" at bat and in center field, many rate his 56-game hitting streak - from May 15 July 16 - as the top baseball feat of all time. His older brother Vince and younger brother Dom were major leaguers. Vince was a National League All-Star. Dom played for 11 years with the Boston Red Sox . All three were noted for their defense.

Early Life
He was born Giuseppe Paolo DiMaggio in Martinez, California in a two-room house, delivered by a midwife . "Giuseppe" (Joseph) was for his father; "Paolo" (Paul) for St. Paul , his father's favorite saint. The family moved to San Francisco when Joe was a year old. Giuseppe was a fisherman, as were generations of DiMaggios before him. He hoped all five of his sons would follow his footsteps. But, Joe had no desire to. As he recalled, he would do anything to get out of cleaning his father's boat as the smell of dead fish made him sick to his stomach. This earned him Giuseppe's ire, who called him "lazy" and "good for nothing." It was only after Joe became the sensation of the Pacific Coast League that the old man was finally won over.

Joe DiMaggio
by Mike Mancuso, April 30, 2001
1941 was a very intriguing year for many Americans. During the summer, baseball stars Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams got the attention of the nation. DiMaggio hit safely in a record 56 straight games, while Ted Williams batted .406. However, America did not know what lay ahead of them. On December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was bombed while DiMaggio was enjoying a football game at the Polo Grounds. The outbreak of war changed the lives of many Americans, including baseball players. On January 14, 1942, baseball Commissioner Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis wrote a query to President Roosevelt questioning the status of the national pastime during the war. Roosevelt responded on January 15 with what has become known as the "green light" letter. Roosevelt wrote, "I honestly feel that it would be best for the country to keep baseball going. There will be fewer people unemployed and everybody will work longer hours and harder than ever before. And that means that they ought to have a chance for recreation and for taking their minds off their work more than before" (2). He also asks for more night games so that it gives opportunities for people on the day shift to see some games. The letter made apparent that players eligible for military duty must serve, but that baseball was essential for recreation for a country at war. On February 17, 1942, Joe DiMaggio enlisted in the Army. Joe had asked that he receive no special treatment as being a national icon. However, Joe would spend most of his time in the Army in the states playing baseball for three years. Most other ballplayers of note did the same, though some did see combat. Most ballplayers served their time on the diamond acting as physical training instructors when not playing. Their purpose on military service teams was to entertain regular troops and the public. However, the players were still subjected to the usual military discipline. Their commanders did not normally care if they were tired and fatigued.
