The 25 Greatest Brothers in Sports History

7. Joe, Vince and Dom DiMaggio

Sport: Baseball
Accomplishments: Joe: 56-game hit streak, MLB Hall of Fame inductee, 9x World Series champion; Vince: 2x All-Star; Dom: 2x All-Star, Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer

Everyone knows about Joe D's long list of accomplishments. His two biggest were probably a 56-game hitting streak that may very well never be equaled, and being Mr. Marilyn Monroe before (possibly) being cuckolded by the president. While less well-known, Vince and Dom both enjoyed solid professional careers as well. Vince was a good player throughout the early 1940s, making the All-Star team in 1943 and 1944 as an outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Dom was even better, making seven All-Star teams for the Boston Red Sox and missing out on three seasons in the prime of his career when he served in the Navy during World War II.
