This Day in Baseball History:
December 11, 1951 > Feeling that he is unable to perform up to the high standards he set during his younger days, Yankee center fielder Joe DiMaggio announces his retirement from baseball. "Joltin' Joe" leaves behind a legacy that includes nine World Series championships in his 13 years, as well as his record-setting 56-game hitting streak from 1941.
