Caption/Description

Joe Dimaggio thrice named American League's most valuable player, was honored with a 'day.' The veteran center fielder stood mute with embarrassment for an hour as his teammates lauded him and a host of distinguished New Yorkers. Joe begged off making a speech. 'I'm all choked up. My heart's in my mouth,' he told the packed stands.
