'The Yankee Clipper' Elected to the Hall of Fame; June 25, 1955

Joe DiMaggio, baseball's superhero, was elected to the Hall of Fame on June 25, 1955. Regarded by many as the finest player of his time, the Yankee Clipper played 13 years with the Yankees. Joe DiMaggio helped the Yankees win ten pennants and 9 World Series' Championships.

He twice led the American League in batting, including .381 in 1939. Three times he was the league's Most Valuable Player. DiMaggio career batting average was .325, with 361 homers and 1537 RBI's. In his autobiography, Ted Williams stated, 'In my heart I have always felt I was a better hitter than Joe, but I have to say that he was the greatest ballplayer of our time. He could do it all'.
