On October 2, 1938 — During the 3-2 loss to New York in the season finale at the Polo Grounds, Bees (Braves) outfielder Vince DiMaggio strikes out four times, extending his major league record to a season total of 129. Last month, Dom and Joe’s older brother had surpassed Gus Williams’ major league mark of 120 whiffs established by the Browns’ outfielder in 1914.
