“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Joe DiMaggio (American Athlete)
Joseph Paul DiMaggio, born Giuseppe Paolo DiMaggio, Jr. , nicknamed Joltin' Joe and The Yankee Clipper, was a baseball player who played his entire Major League career for the New York Yankees. He was the brother of Vince DiMaggio and Dom DiMaggio. He was born in Martinez, California, and moved to San Francisco at one year old. The family name was often spoken in the media as "di-MAH-gee-oh" but was more properly pronounced "di-MAH-zhee-oh" .
DiMaggio was a 3-time MVP winner and 13-time All-Star who was widely hailed for his accomplishment on both offense and, as a center fielder, on defense, as well as for the grace with which he played the game. At the time of his retirement at age 36, he had the fifth-most career home runs and sixth-highest slugging percentage in history. He is also the only player in baseball history to be selected for the All-Star Game in every season he played.
