Joseph Paul DiMaggio (November 25, 1914 – March 8, 1999)

Joe DiMaggio was a baseball center fielder who played his entire 13-year
career in
Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees. He is widely
considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time, and is perhaps
best known for his 56-game
hitting streak (May 15 – July 16, 1941), a record
that still stands. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955 and
was voted the sport’s greatest living player in a poll taken during the
baseball centennial year of 1969.

DiMaggio, a heavy smoker for much of his adult life, was admitted to
Memorial Regional Hospital in
Hollywood, Florida, on October 12, 1998,
for lung cancer surgery and remained there for 99 days. He returned to
his home in
Hollywood, Florida, on January 19, 1999; he died there at
age 84 on March 8.
