DiMaggio 56 Game Hit Streak & Williams 406 3x6 Metal Ticket
On July 16, 1941, Joe DiMaggio collected three hits against the Indians in a Yankees 10-3 win at Cleveland's League Park. The event marked the 56th straight game that DiMaggio hit safely in and established a Major League mark that many experts call the toughest record in sports to break. DiMaggio's streak began on May 15 as the Yankees lost to the White Sox and saw their record drop to 14-15, 6 ½ games out of first place. Joltin' Joe had one hit that day and finished the game batting .304. When the streak ended, the Yankees had 55 wins and a six-game lead in the American League. DiMaggio, who hit .409 during the streak, was now hitting a robust .375. Joseph Paul DiMaggio was born Nov. 25, 1914, in Martinez, Calif., about 35 miles outside of San Francisco. He broke into the big leagues in 1936 with the New York Yankees and retired after the 1951 season. His teams won nine World Series during 13 seasons. DiMaggio also won three American League MVP awards and was named to 13 All-Star Games. Yet, despite all of his feats, it is his 56-game hitting streak that he is often remembered for. The Yankees went on to capture the 1941 World Series and it surely contributed to the Yankee Clipper earning MVP honors that season. The first line of DiMaggio's Hall-of-Fame plaque simply reads “hit safely in 56 consecutive games for Major League record.” This 3x6 Metal Ticket is crafted from an authentic 1941 American League Season Pass. The pass would have allowed entrance to every game in DiMaggio's historic streak as well as each game in Ted Williams' .406 season, the last season in which a player hit .400
