June 28, 1941: DiMaggio reaches # 40


1941 is the 75th anniversary of one of sports' most amazing accomplishments, i.e. the 56-game hitting streak that kept the entire nation checking the daily sports pages for updates.

Joe DiMaggio entered historic territory when he went 2-for-5 and cracked the "40 circle".  He became the 5th major leaguer to do so:

Willie Keeler 45 1896-1897
Bill Dahlen 42 1894
George Sisler 41 1922

Ty Cobb         40 1911

We should add that Pete Rose got to 44 in 1978.
