Today in Baseball History:

  • 1934 — The Yankees purchase Joe DiMaggio from San Francisco of the Pacific Coast League. The son of Italian immigrants will be one of three DiMaggio brothers to play in the major leagues. Dom and Vince are the others.
  • 1969 — Future Hall of Famer Ken Griffey, Jr. is born in Donora, PA, the son of Ken Griffey, Sr., himself an All-Star outfielder who will not make his major league debut until 1973. The two will be the first father/son duo to play together in the major leagues, in 1990, but the younger Griffey will greatly surpass his father’s accomplishments, receiving a record-high percentage of the vote when elected to Cooperstown in 2016.
