The New York Stock Exchange is founded, Frazier outlasts Ali, the compact disc makes its debut, and Baseball Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio dies, all on this day.
1999: Baseball Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio, who only played for the New York Yankees during his 13-year career and is best known for his 56-game hitting streak during the 1941 season, dies of lung cancer at the age of 84 in Hollywood, Fla. Joining the Yankees in 1936, he would help the team to World Series titles in each of his first four seasons with them and add five more championships before he retired in 1951.
