On October 1, the last day of the 1949 season, the star was honored with a Joe DiMaggio Appreciation Day at Yankee Stadium. Team officials were probably wondering how long DiMaggio would continue to play and just in case his setbacks led to him making a decision to retire in the off-season they wished to honor him while he was still in uniform. The fans wanted to be there, too, and 69,551 turned out. In a speech to the fans, DiMaggio said that when he was a rookie headed to the Big Apple, Lefty ODoul, who was managing the San Francisco Seals and had once hit as high as. 398 in the majors, took the young DiMaggio aside to offer advice.
DiMaggio said ODoul told him not to be scared of New York City because it was really the friendliest of towns. This day proves it, DiMaggio said. He thanked Stengel, friends and teammates, whom he called the fightingest bunch that ever lived. Be sure to check out my other items listed.
