We remember the great Joe DiMaggio (1914-99)

 

The great Joe DiMaggio was born in San Francisco on this day in 1914.    He died in 1999.


We've posted a lot about his 56 game hitting streak.   Of course, Joe was more than the streak.   He won MVP's and led the Yankees to several World Series titles.    He was the best player in the best team in baseball.

DiMaggio retired after the 1951 season:   a .325 average, 361 HR, 1,537 RBI in 1,736 games.  

In this book, you will learn that Joe was very quiet and shy but he could hit.

Happy # 72 Bucky Dent




Russell Earl O'Dey was born in Florida on this day in 1951.   He ended up as Bucky Dent.

In 1973, Dent broke with the Chicago White Sox.   He hit .260 over 4 seasons as Chicago's shortstop.


From 1977 to '82, he was with the Yankees and that's where he hit one of the most famous HR's in New York-Boston history.    It happened in the 1-game 1978 playoff to determine the AL East champion.


Overall, he played 12 seasons and hit .247.    However, it was that swing at Fenway Park that made him a big hero for the Yankees and forever hated in Boston.


Bucky Dent was a part of the 1978 New York Yankees, one of the most amazing championship teams ever.

1967: The Beatles, "Hello Goodbye" and many Thanksgivings ago!


The Beatles released the "Magical Mystery Tour" album just in time for Christmas 1967.

It was the soundtrack of a British TV show. However, the BBC special was not shown in the US. (You can buy a video copy!)

Side A was the soundtrack music.

Side B was a compilation of 1967 singles. 

"Hello Goodbye", their new single and one of their most popular songs ever recorded by the group, was presented to the country on The Ed Sullivan Show, the Sunday night after Thanksgiving.    It was released as a 45 prior to the LP.  Eventually, it hit # 1 the last week of 1967.
