Letter from the
by Michael Aubrecht Pinstripe Press
Welcome to our first summer double
issue of The Highlander. As a special tribute to
the great newspaper sports pages of days gone by,
this month's version has been reformatted with a
classic newsprint layout. We were inspired after
purchasing a wonderful book called "Baseball Extra:
A Newspaper History of the Glorious Game from Its
Beginnings to the Present" - an incredible
collection of rare newspaper pages that chart
baseball's history from its beginnings in the
mid-1800's to the 1999 World Series. Almost every
classic moment in the history of the game has been
preserved in the headlines, photos, illustrations
and box scores from newspapers around the world.

place of the newspaper, because you can't swat

#5 Joe DiMaggio
The Yankee Clipper
Born: November 25, 1914, Martinez,
Died: March 8, 1999, Hollywood, Florida
Joe DiMaggio is remembered
as one of the game's most graceful
athletes — a "picture player" both at bat and in
center field. Many rate his 56-consecutive-game
hitting streak in 1941 as the top baseball feat of
all time. "The Yankee Clipper" used an unusually
wide stance in winning two batting championships
and three MVP awards. In 13 seasons he amassed 361
homers, averaged 118 RBI annually and compiled a
.325 lifetime batting mark. At Baseball's 1969
Centennial Celebration, he was named the game's
greatest living player.
Did you know...
that in 1933, eight years before his famed 56-game
hitting streak, Joe DiMaggio fashioned a 61-game
hitting streak with the San Francisco Seals of the
Pacific Coast League? Source: MLB
