Streak vividly and poignantly tells the story of "Joltin' Joe" DiMaggio's legendary fifty-six-game hitting streak and the last golden summer of baseball before America was engulfed by the maelstrom of the Second World War. That long-lost summer also witnessed other unforgettable events: Ted Williams's quest to bat 400 and Lefty Grove's pursuit of his three-hundredth victory; a sizzling, epic race between the Dodgers and the Cardinals for the National League pennant; and Mickey Owen's infamous passed ball in the fourth game of the World Series.

Featuring complete box scores for each game, Streak showcases DiMaggio's crowning achievement, commemorates a baseball season like no other, and invites us to an America in the last moments of its innocence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[DiMaggio's] feat is lovingly chronicled, game by game, in Streak, a book New York Yankee fans will admire. . . . [Seidel] has interviewed many of the men who played with and against DiMaggio that year and tells just how DiMaggio managed to keep on hitting and hitting."-New York Times Book Review * New York Times Book Review *
"This book chronicles the intricate factual events of DiMaggio's achievement, and pays the best kind of proper respect, while providing the right sort of description. . . . [It] succeeds with a simple and honorable premise. The streak itself is such a good story, such an important event in our cultural history, that the day-by-day chronicle will shape a bare sequence into a wonderful drama with beginning, middle and end."-The New York Review of Books * The New York Review of Books *
