This is what baseball is all about. Today in History.

May 15, 1941 begins one of the longest lasting, and perhaps one of the hardest to surpass records in baseball history.  That was the 1st of the 56 consecutive games where famed all-star Joe DiMaggio achieved at least one base hit.  I think I am correct in saying that a few hitters have had successful streaks of games with at least one hit that lasted for 35 games or so since then, but no one has really threatened to match that record set long ago by "Jolting" Joe DiMaggio (that is one cool nickname).  To quote Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, "Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you".

Joe Dimaggio was one of the great ones.  A great athlete and a gentleman.

He was a great player and I hope no one will ever beat that streak.  The game is simply not the same anymore.

My son and I were talking about the sport of baseball and it's history the other day. It's true, baseball ain't what it use to be! Too bad!
