Dominic, affectionately known as The Little Professor, was a seven-time All-Star who played for the Boston Red Sox. And Vince DiMaggio, the eldest, made two All-Star teams while playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates.The DiMaggios reveals how three kids from an immigrant family found their way to the upper echelons of American sports and popular culture.
