Joe DiMaggio

 

A 21-year old Yankee outfield named Joe DiMaggio makes his Major League début with a win over the St. Louis Browns. DiMaggio goes 3-6 with a triple, scoring three runs, driving in an rbi, and striking out once. The Yankee Clipper would go on to play 13 years in the bigs giving 3 years (1943-1945) to US Air Force. He was a 13-time All-Star and 3-time AL MVP. In 1941 DiMaggio sets the record for most consecutive games with a hit, 56.
