 Remembering History
*sponsored by the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society, the St. Louis Browns Historical Society,
& Play it Again Sports

As a companion piece to Romano's Bullpen, Marie Smith will give us info on players from some of our teams of the 1940's and 1980's as well as stadiums and baseball events of the eras.  Check in twice each week, learn and remember, and if you are picked out at the park and answer correctly you may win a nice prize.  

DiMaggio's 56 game streak

In May of 1941, Joe DiMaggio started the longest consecutive game hitting streak in Major league history.  A 1 for 4 day against the White Sox started him on an incredible run of getting at least one hit in 56 consecutive games.  During the streak Joe hit 15 homers and had 55 Rbis.  The streak ended in July against the Cleveland Indians.

**How it works:
About twice each week info will be posted on a player, a ballpark, or an event.  Players will be randomly asked a question on the page at the park and if they answer correctly they win a small prize (giftcards, old baseball cards, etc.)

So stay up on your history.
