Synopsis: The Kid and the Clipper is about two sports legends of the 1930s, Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio, who accomplished feats that have not been equaled since. They transcended sport and became part of American mythology. In that 1941 season, they took turns in the spotlight: DiMaggio enjoyed his 56-game hitting streak, which Williams interrupted with his spectacular homerun to win the All-Star Game. When DiMaggio's streak ended at 56, Williams gained prominence by getting six hits on the last day of the season to hit .406. While this book compares and contrasts the lives of two of the greatest hitters of the 20th century, it also chronicles the major evens of their time. When DiMaggio joined the Yankees in 1936, it was the year of the dust bowl and of the exploits of Jesse Owens in the Olympics. 1939 was the era of the big band sound, the New York World's Fair and the end of Lou Gehrig's career from the disease that now bears his name. When DiMaggio began his remarkable streak in May of 1941, the British navy was in hot pursuit of the German Dread nought, Bismarck, and in September, as the guns of World War II sounded, Williams continued the drama of hitting .406.
