This Day In New York Yankees History 6/19

On this day in 1903 Heinrich and Christina Gehrig gave birth to a nearly 14 pound healthy baby boy in Manhattan's East Harlem. They named their baby Lou, their only surviving child.

On this day in 1941 Joe DiMaggio extended his hitting streak to 32 games with a 3-3 game against the Chicago White Sox. DiMaggio would hit two singles and a home run in the Yankees 7-2 win in Yankee Stadium.

On this day in 1995 the Yankees sign Darryl Strawberry to a contract even though he is serving a 60 game suspension for his drug use. Strawberry would spend five seasons in the Bronx and was a huge part of three World Series titles and the dynasty.
