During the 3-2 loss to New York on October 2, 1938, in the season finale at the Polo Grounds, Bees (Braves) outfielder Vince DiMaggio strikes out four times, extending his major league record to a season total of 129.
It is something to be known as Joe’s older brother. During a 10-year baseball career, Vince played for the Boston Bees (1937–1938), Cincinnati Reds (1939–1940), Pittsburgh Pirates (1940–1945), Philadelphia Phillies (1945–1946), and New York Giants (1946). Vince was the older brother of Joe and Dom DiMaggio.
In September, Dom and Joe’s older brother had surpassed Gus Williams’ major league mark of 120 whiffs established by the Browns’ outfielder in 1914.
