Happy Birthday Joe DiMaggio

One of the all time baseball greats was born on November 25th, 1914. DiMaggio broke the hearts of Red Sox fans for many years, and was one of the greatest players in baseball history. His marriage to Marilyn Monroe captivated the nation, and though he is gone his legacy lives on. He holds the record for consecutive games with a hit at 56, a record that many feel can never be broken. He was immortalized in song as well, by Simon & Garfunkel. And what a great song it is. “A nation turns its lonely eyes to you”!
