Joe DiMaggio 100 -- November 25, 2014

Joe Dimaggio, one of the greatest baseball players, was born 100 years ago today in Martinez.  He grew up in San Francisco. One of my grandfather's younger friends played against him at North Beach Playground. He played for the San Francisco Seals.  Here we have a photo of him in uniform.  Later he played for the New York Yankees. 


I'm very sorry to hear that Pablo Sandoval is leaving the Giants to go to the Red Sox.  He has done a lot of good for the Giants.  The Red Sox fans will not be as patient with him when he gets into a slump.  Good luck, Panda.  Thank you for all the memories.
