He played in the major leagues from 1936 to 1951.

I would love to vote no on the basis that he was one of the most overrated players in baseball history.
The gap between any of us and Neifi Perez is 354 RCAA.
The gap between DiMaggio's reality and how he's treated is definitely more than 354 RCAA. He had 708, but is treated as though he had 1063+.
I would love to vote no on the basis of how overrated he was, but can't do it.

see, I came into this topic, all set to type up a rant about how overrated DiMaggio is... but Lee beat me to the punch
so I'll just leave it with the admission that DiMaggio was one of the 50 best hitters ever, but he wasn't Top 10 material

Could not agree more with the over rated sentiments.
