In your November issue you printed a short piece under “My Brush With History” about New York Yankee great Joe DiMaggio.

It is certainly possible that, as a schoolboy, DiMaggio was able to throw with both hands. It is also possible, however, that the mind can play tricks on you after the passage of more than half a century. That is because, throughout his professional career, DiMaggio’s strong right arm was well respected by baserunners.

We hope you enjoy our work.
