    He raped (oh shit, here comes #cancelculture) ... but he raped the ball for #350 at age 28.

    In what turns out to be one of the most lopsided deals in baseball history, the New York Yankees 86 years ago today send backup infielder Doc Farrell, three minor league players and $25,000 to the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast League for a 19-year-old outfielder named Joe DiMaggio.

    DiMaggio remains with the Seals for the 1935 season – and hits .398 for them -- before joining the Yankees in 1936 and starting a Hall of Fame career that includes 13 All-Star appearances in 13 seasons, nine World Series titles in those 13 seasons and a post-career marriage, albeit briefly, to Marilyn Monroe.

    Thanks for looking ... Andy Linker @www.harrisburgbaseball.com

    Cancel culture? That is just a really odd choice of words. There are so many options that are better.

    The fact that you thought about it, commented about thinking about it AND it’s a shitty way to describe a home run...

    Oh my god, someone said rape to describe a home run.

    I mean, this place has never used the word rape. Ever.

    Look at Mike Trout holocaust that ball.

    Some things just don’t sing, man.

    It ain’t cancel culture. It’s just sucky writing.

    Feels like you wrote that just so you could overreact.

    lol no I wrote that because it was apt. He raped the ball.

    Don't like it? Such is life.

    I mean, I'm really not bothered by it. You just seemed to really want to write it for the purpose of being able to react to people. Hey man, keep writing it if you find other home runs that make you feel that way.
