Short Notes on Joe DiMaggio’s 56-Game Hitting Streak

Joe DiMaggio was hitting for a .306/.427/.537 triple slash line, coming into the start of his 56-game streak (and this dipped to .304/.422/.527 with the 1-4 that began the streak). About halfway through it, after the June 18 game, it was .336/.424/.607, so a lower on-base percentage, and the batting average wasn’t a lot higher.

After game 56 on July 16, it was .375/.451/.659. After the August 2 game that ended his 72 out of 73 games streak, it was .381/.459/.684. He had five 4-hit games from June 20 through July 1941. You can look through his 1941 game log here.
