Infographic: Joe’s 56-Game Hit Streak

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!
