Sad news this morning as Red Sox Nation woke up to the disheartening news that one of it's living legends, Dom Dimaggio, had passed away. Dom was one of the better CF in Red Sox history and will forever be linked to a golden time in baseball, where he shared locker rooms and friendships with the likes of Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky, and Bobby Doerr.
Who hits the ball and makes it go? Dominic DiMaggio.
Who runs the bases fast, not slow? Dominic DiMaggio.
Who's better than his brother Joe? Dominic DiMaggio.
But when it comes to getting dough,
They give it all to brother Joe.”— Refrain Cited by Red Sox Fans in the 1940s
