Trivia

A monument was dedicated to him in Yankee Stadium on April 25, 1999

Never remarried after Marilyn's death.

Banned the Kennedy's and Rat Packers from Marilyn's funeral.

Years after the death of Marilyn Monroe he placed fresh roses at her memorial site.

Had DiMaggio's streak reached 57 games, Heinz would have hired him to endorse their ketchup products (Heinz 57).

His number 5 was retired by the New York Yankees and Oakland A's.

Was a part-owner and batting instructor for the Oakland A's in 1968 and 1969.

The day after his 56 game hitting streak ended, DiMaggio embarked on a second streak that lasted 16 games. Had he hit in game #57, he would have had a 73 game hitting streak!
