Infographic: Joe’s 56-Game Hit StreakPosted: June 4, 2017
This infographic helps to put Joe DiMaggio’s 1941 56-game hit streak in a bit of perspective. Not surprisingly, most of these games, DiMaggio continued his streak with a single hit. Still, in a sport where failing 2/3 of the time still means you are a success, one hit is a major contribution. During this streak, DiMaggio blew the 33% success rate out of the water. The statistic that struck me the most, however, was the fact that he struck out a mere five times in these fifty-six games. Talk about being on fire!
