1941 Headline: DiMaggio’s Streak Ends At 56 Games!!!

On this day in 1941, Joe DiMaggio’s incredible streak of collecting at least 1 hit in 56 consecutive games came to an end.

The last twenty-five years have seen some of baseball’s most historic records fall. From Pete Rose eclipsing Ty Cobb to Mark McGwire topping Roger Maris to Cal Ripken passing Lou Gehrig to Barry Bonds out-blasting Hank Aaron.

And to this day, more than 68 years later, nobody has really come close to threatening Joe DiMaggio and his incredible streak of collecting at least one hit in 56 straight games!

Happy Anniversary Mr. DiMaggio!!!
