Dominic DiMaggio died today at the age of 92. DiMaggio spent his entire MLB career with the Red Sox, and was the youngest of three DiMaggio brothers in the Majors. He was one of the four legendary Teammates (the others being Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, and Johny Peskey), and hit leadoff for the Sox in the 40s and 50s. In 11 seasons, he scored over 1,000 runs, had a .298 career average, .398 career OBP (wow!), was a 7 time All-Star (4 times as a starter), and 147 outfield assists.
