Summary
More than 350 sets of brothers have played in the major leagues since the 1870s, but few have had the skill, the charisma, or the success of the DiMaggio brothers. Joe, "The Yankee Clipper," is an American icon, but two of his brothers were dynamic players in their own right. Dominic, known as "The Little Professor," was a seven-time All-Star with the Boston Red Sox 1940-1953. He hit better than .300 five times in his career, and like his big brother, rarely struck out. Vince DiMaggio, the eldest, made two All-Star teams and in 1941 smacked 21 homers and drove in 200 RBIs for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Journalist Tom Clavin draws on a wealth of source materials, interviews with family members and teammates, and in-depth reporting to reveal how three kids from an immigrant family found their way to the upper echelons of American sports and popular culture. This vivid portrait of a family is also an exploration of an era and a culture.--From publisher description
