March 8, 1999 – Joe DiMaggio Passes Away at 84

On this date in 1999, the Yankee family lost one of the greatest hitters to ever wear the pinstripes, Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio.

Now Pitching For the New York Yankees

There is another kind of pitching in baseball, one that has nothing to do with curveballs, strikeouts, or catcher signs. Pitching products is a cornerstone of baseball. As a spokesman, a baseball player uses his fame, personality, and excellence on the baseball diamond as currency of credibility in endorsing products.
