Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
Baseball star Joe DiMaggio earned a permanent place in America's pantheon of heroes. The record-breaking slugger led the New York Yankees to many championships on the field; while off the field, he married Hollywood's most glamorous star. This biography chronicles the success of the "Yankee Clipper" at the great American pastime, as well as the tragic story of his relationship with Marilyn Monroe. Archival film clips, photographs, and interviews with family, friends, fans, colleagues, and Joe DiMaggio himself tell the story of this baseball legend.
