From the Back Cover:

The great American story of three brothers—Joltin' Joe, Dom, and Vince Dimaggio—and the great American game, baseball, that would consume their lives

More than three hundred fifty sets of brothers have played in the major leagues since the 1870s. But few have had the skill, the charisma, or the success of the DiMaggio brothers. In The DiMaggios, journalist Tom Clavin draws on a wealth of source materials, interviews with family members and teammates, and in-depth reporting to reveal how three kids from an immigrant family of eleven found their way to the upper echelons of American sports and popular culture. A vivid portrait of a family and the ways in which their shifting fortunes and status shaped their relationships, it is also a transporting exploration of an era and a culture, using our national pastime, baseball, as a lens to view and understand American society in the twentieth century.
