Black & white photos of DiMaggio showering in the Yankees Clubhouse emerge
Joe DiMaggio, perhaps best known for his 56-game hitting streak for the Yankees in 1941, & rocky marriage with Marilyn Monroe (1954)
Baseball legend Pete Rose explained that when they were in the middle of the jungle, DiMaggio said he needed to take a shower…
“And the only way you can take a shower, is they have these big bamboo bags, like, and somebody’s got to get on a chair and pour the water and pull a rawhide thing and the water comes through and the guy takes a shower. So I saw everything that Marilyn Monroe saw”
Rose went on to say that the best way to describe the former Yankee is that
“he was a penis with a man hanging from it.”
Full-frontal nude photos (taken around 1940) of baseball great Joe Dimaggio, showering after a game, is currently on view at the gallery Modernism in San Francisco. The photos reveal the naked Yankee slugger soaking wet and grinning happily.
Hmm… he must be a grower, not a shower.
