Last of all eight of the DiMaggio brothers. Sad to see a living witness to history pass away.

Only major leaguer to lead his league in stolen bases with as few as 15. I never saw him play, but people I've talked to say he was an underrated ballplayer.

Lived to age 92.

Teammate to Ted Williams.

Brother of Joe DiMaggio.

One could live a worse life.
