This day in baseball: Joltin’ Joe jolts an inning

On June 24, 1936, twenty-one-year-old Joe DiMaggio hit two home runs in the fifth inning against the White Sox at Comiskey Park.  This made the rookie outfielder the first Yankee and the fifth Major League player ever to accomplish the feat.  The Yankees defeated the Sox 18-11.
