What I always found incredible...


DiMaggio drew a walk in the game immediately preceding the 56-game hitting streak. He also walked in the hitless game that ended the streak - then went on another 16-game hitting streak.

Adding the two games where he drew walks without getting a base knock, DiMaggio had a staggering on-base streak of 74 consecutive games.
