In 1997, Nomar Garciaparra entered the record books ( 30+ Game Hitting Streaks ) when he hit safely in 30-straight Boston Red Sox games, tying Hall of Famer Tris Speaker (1912). Nomar's streak ended at 30, four games shy of the Boston Red Sox team record set by Dom DiMaggio, who hit safely in thirty-four games in 1949.

Brotherly Love

The 34-game record-setting hitting streak ended on August 9, 1949 . Dom DiMaggio had five at-bats in a game played in Fenway Park .

In the first inning, Dom grounded out to the shortstop (at-bat #1). In the third inning, Dom flied out to center field (at-bat #2). In the fifth inning, Dom struck out (at-bat #3). In the seventh inning, Dom grounded out to the pitcher (at-bat #4). In the eighth inning, Dom flied out to center field (at-bat #5). The opposing center fielder that streak-ending day, Dom's brother, Joe DiMaggio .

Dom DiMaggio ( Hitting Streak ) | The Daily Times (OH) | August 10, 1949 | Page 8
Dom DiMaggio led the American League in runs scored (131), triples (11) and stolen bases (15) during the 1950 season. Take a look at the Year by Year Leaders for Stolen Bases and you'll discover his league leading 15-steals is the lowest stolen base total to lead either league throughout Major League history!

On June 30, 1950 , Dom DiMaggio hit a home run in the sixth inning off Joe Ostrowski of the New York Yankees . Two innings later, Joe DiMaggio (Dom's brother) hit a home run in the eighth inning off Walt Masterson of the Boston Red Sox - in the same game. It was the sixth time in Major League history two brothers had hit homers in the same contest, but the first and only instance (through today) where the match-up featured the Red Sox vs Yankees .
