Where Did You Go, Dom DiMaggio?

Seven-time All Star Dominic DiMaggio, who always lived in the shadows of Hall of Fame brother Joe and teammate Ted Williams, died early today at age 92.

DiMaggio still holds the record for the longest consecutive game hitting streak in Red Sox history, yet his 34-game hitting streak games in 1949 was only the second longest hit streak in the DiMaggio family, forever over-shadowed by his brother Joe’s major league record 56-game hitting streak with the Yankees in 1941. If that wasn’t bad enough, it was Joe who caught a sinking liner off Dom’s bat to end his younger brother’s hit streak.
