How many DiMaggio brothers played in Major League Baseball?

Joe DiMaggio was star for New York Yankees, Dominic DiMaggio was a star for the Boston Red Sox, and Vince DiMaggio played for the Pittsburgh Pirates where his best year was in 1942 (21 HR, 100 RBIs, .267 BA)

The oldest of the three DiMaggio brothers, Vince was discovered by MLB scouts first and played for five teams in his 10-year career (Pirates, Phillies, Braves, Reds, Giants).

A two-time All-Star at centerfield, Vince never achieved the fame his younger brothers did. In fact, DiMaggio biographers claim that Vince and his more popular brother, Joe, were not friendly as adults and had no meaningful relationship.

The DiMaggio brothers (l to r): Vince, Joe, Dom.
