Perhaps the most impressive record in all of sports is the 56 game hitting streak by Joe DiMaggio during the summer of 1941. Nobody has even come close to it, and it is likely it will stand until the end of time. This rare photograph captures DiMaggio after the game in which he recorded his 55th and second to last consecutive game with a hit. Coincidentally, it was off Lefty Smith who served up his first hit to get the streak started! A rare image from the most impressive record in baseball history, issued by Wide World Photos and stamped on the back with a long paper caption.
