Joe DiMaggio on the cover of Sports World
(America's Fun Magazine) May 1949 issue.
Ang American major league center fielder na si Giuseppe Paulo “Joe” DiMaggio (1914-1999) ay katangi-tanging atleta ng kaniyang panahon. Isa siyang three-time Most Valuable Player at 13-time All-Star player, ang nag-iisang manlalaro ng baseball na laging nakakasama sa All-Stars sa 13 tatlong taon niyang paglalaro sa New York Yankees, kabilang dito ang siyam na kampeonato sa World Series. Hawak niya ang “56-game hitting streak” (Mula May 15 hanggang July 16, 1941), isang record na hindi pa rin napapantayan.
Noong 1949, si DiMaggio ang kauna-unahang baseball player na lumagpas ang kinikita ng 100,000 dollars sa bawat taon. Siya ay napasama sa Baseball Hall of Fame noong 1955.
