Dom DiMaggio

The great Red Sox centerfielder has died at the age of 92. DiMaggio was well before my time, but a few years ago I learned quite a bit about his remarkable life and career in David Halberstam’s book “The Teammates: A Portrait of a Friendship.” Highly recommended.

    That’s very sad news. I would heartily second your recommendation for Halberstam’s Teammates.Also, I hope that NESN or WEEI would release some of the interviews they’ve had with Dom over the years. He comes across as a warm and down to earth guy. Even with a more celebrated brother in baseball, Dom found his niche and became great in his own right.
