In front of more than 60,000 fans at Cleveland Stadium, Joe DiMaggio‘s hitting streak is ended at 56 games. Indians pitchers Al Smith and Jim Bagby Jr., plus sensational plays by third baseman Ken Keltner, stop the “Yankee Clipper”. New York still manages to edge the Indians, 6 – 5. It is said that DiMaggio missed out on a big endorsement deal with Heinz 57 by not extending his streak by one more game.
