Joe Dimaggio Bio

Marilyn Monroe and Joe DimaggioJoseph Paul DiMaggio, born Giuseppe Paolo DiMaggio, Jr. (November 25, 1914 – March 8, 1999), nicknamed Joltin' Joe and The Yankee Clipper, was a MLB baseball player center fielder who played his entire MLB career (1936–1951) for the New York Yankees. He was the brother of Vince DiMaggio and Dom DiMaggio, both major leaguers. He was born in Martinez, California, and moved to San Francisco at one year old. The family name was often spoken in the media as "di-MA-gee-oh" (with a short-a) but was more properly pronounced "di-MAH-zhee-oh".

A 3-time MVP winner and 13-time All-Star who was widely hailed for his accomplishment on both offense and defense, as well as for the grace with which he played the game; at the time of his retirement at age 36, he had the fifth-most career home runs (361) and sixth-highest slugging percentage (.579) in history. He is also the only player in baseball history to be selected for the All-Star Game in every season he played.

A "picture-perfect" player, Joe DiMaggio achieved a 56-game hitting streak (May 15 – July 16, 1941) that has been called the top American sport feat of all time. After going hitless for one game, DiMaggio hit in the next 16 consecutive games, for a total of 72 out of 73. A 1969 poll conducted to coincide with the centennial of professional baseball voted him the sport's greatest living player.¹

Below are DiMaggio's stats for his three Most Valuable Player seasons. While you're at it, check out the strike-out frequency. How about that!
