Di Maggio Diary Debate

Dom DiMaggio is still fiesty. He’s not happy about his late brother’s written notes being sold. Others claim the Yankee Clipper (you know, Dom’s brother?) knew the day would come.

The pages of Joe DiMaggio’s modern "diary" are being sold individually by Steiner Sports after no one bought them lock, stock and barrel for $1.5 million.

No matter how they’re marketed, his brother Dom and others told Boston.com they don’t like the idea. Yet Joltin’ Joe wasn’t blind to the value of his handwriting. Did he expect someday those pages would wind up in the public’s hands?

Some of Joe’s jottings don’t do much to dispel the general feeling that–at least in later years–he was one grumpy Hall of Famer.
