"Dinner with Dimaggio. Memories of American hero a rock first of all Dimaggio was certainly a baseball and sports icon. So tell me. What was the motivation for writing the book? Well I think the most important thing lawn was remembered. That first and foremost that this book is not got a book about baseball okay. It's really a book about a relationship. It's a really a snapshot of Joe Dimaggio's last nine to ten years that he spent a New York City eighty when he was actually able to enjoy himself because he no longer had the pressure of playing Centerfield for the most prestigious phenomenal You know sports franchise in the history of this country so I think one of the things I always found interesting was that so many people read Orbis articles about Joe and these books about Joe and yet most of them painting the minute very unusual way they many many paint them as being aloof and cheap and sometimes rude and all the above and again one of the beautiful things about spending anyone that quality time with Joe in New York City that I really very rarely saw that side him. which which was something that was an impetus to me saying you know what one day I think? Thanks so much you'd write a memoir about the real the real the Maggio the personal side of the Maggio. The person that sat down at the dinner table And that was the whole basis of really the memoir and it was interestingly. It was originally an idea that Richard Ben Kramer had came come up with when he had interviewed me. Some years ago for his Biz Book You know the hero's life and you know at the end of the day Richard realized that he wasn't going to get anything negative or controversial by Joe for me but the one thing he was fascinated with was he he said you know what so many of these stories that he spoke with you at the dinner table or so interesting and really. He's as you should think about down the road maybe putting these thoughts down and and showing it with the public so they they show a whole different historical side of the measure. That was really never seen before. One of the things I've found in the years is that we're all a product of up bringing in our past so with that in mind. Let's go back to where he grew up in San Francisco in his past that helped formulate who turned out to be no no question. Oh Shit about it again you know. He came from a hard working immigrant family. That obviously work their way up. There were hardworking people. But let's face it at the end of the day. It was all about the dinner table. I mean the D'Amato's were were very very typical of the Italians. Who grew up at during that time they were very family oriented and of course more discussions have been at the dinner table then probably people could ever imagine which is just a cultural thing and I think you know sharing some of the stories when he was growing up with me about how how good his apparently were how hard working they were Really gave me a keener appreciation. For what the man was really about and one of the things I think that he saw me was something that was similar because I grew up in a very humble neighborhood in good Ole Brooklyn New York at the time Ron when wasn't as cool as it is now and let's face it growing up in Brooklyn in the sixties and the seventies was all about relationships it was about Friendship it was about being able to work with people been able to help people out being able to protect your friends and your your relatives and your intimate and in that respect I think joe also found out that because I didn't come from a lot of money honey. I came from a very hardworking people that we had something in common. Okay and I think the big thing was that people didn't realize just how dedicated Joe was to education. I think he saw me street boy a street kid who used to basically pick up garbage inside the park when I was fourteen or fifteen years old. Who really worked retard worked worked many jobs? You know 'cause able to go through school come out of school unfortunately with a lot of loans but at the end of the day I was able to pay them all off and I think he admired. Why is that that? I didn't have that silver spoon mentality. You know it's kind of interesting and talking to his brother dumb as I did over the years His family really was was kind of turned off baseball weren't they. Yeah I mean again you know. Just Joe's dad wanted him to be an accountant. You know he used the term used to close Io oh they say in Italian Lagnota also he. Joe Is Lazy Well. Joe Is thought from lazy at the end of the day. You know the demise does did not want to grow up and have to work in the fishing boat all day long. You know as you know Joe had a problem with seasickness. He hated working on his father's boat. Okay and if he was committed to making a better way. Am when he realized that he had a a gift of God giving gifts to play baseball he realized that this was his ticket. Out of the neighborhood. But you know you think about this Ron I mean across you had the pleasure of knowing Dominic Dimaggio where are the odds of not one not two but three brothers playing major league baseball and when it comes to his father his father was a discriminated against in a sense because they labeled him enemy alien explained that pretty much they again during that time. Of course you know Italy Lee was part of the You know the German alliance and I think many many of these these poor people who came from from other countries where labeled as being unfriendly your potentially unfriendly toward our government and of course. That was one of the one of the real problems that Joe had had is that his. He felt that his father wasn't given a really a good shot and he was basically being discriminated against me. They treated everybody From that part of the world as being a potential enemy and you know Joe had a problem with that and he was entered did it and at the end of the day. Joe Is more even more committed to becoming very successful and being able to show how important his father's work wasn't how raising him the way he did. Let him to be one of the greatest baseball players ever was there. Any one thing or one person that really influenced him a lot in his early days. I think the most important thing with him was was really the Yankees themselves. I mean I think he loves Lou. Garrick he always spoke about Lou. Garrick Eric Garrick was his locker mate and he would tell me that garrick would give him pointers about how to be and how to act and they had a very special relationship he also respect respect garrick intelligence because garrick went to Columbia University and one of the things that Joe always respected was higher education. Okay and I think in many respects Garrett Kelp to formulate some of his you know his persona both on and off the field you know act like a gentleman. Be Proud to be a Yankee. Be a great influence. Particularly it comes to kids. In that respect I think garrick had a tremendous influence on Dimaggio. Dr Rock Positano and his brother John have written the wonderful book called Dinner With Damasio Memories of an American hero. I want you to tell me because I was surprised. I didn't know this about his dad. Asking him to throw a game because that was kind of out of context of everything I had heard about the family well again. I don't think in that respect. Respect run that his dad was asking him patrol game. I think he was speaking like a father. Pretty pretty much saying you know you know you've always got the championship rings. You know you'd be going to be playing. Dominic up in Fenway Park. You know you're out of the race. You know maybe go a little easier today as I think the way it was meant I it was. It was more like a fatherly thing. As opposed to joke. Go in there and tell the game there was no way that did the Maggio's whatever throw a game. Joe Never throw a game. His brother Dominic whenever throw a game and his father was an unbelievably honorable person for Joe told me and again. I don't think that that was the way it was really intended. I think he meant to say the fodder. Why don't you like? Why don't you give your brother chance? Here let him try to win a world series tennis sisters right take me. I'm sure I'm sure when the when the Williams sisters were playing their father had a lot of You know maybe struggles who who wins like who take light light snow but it was Kinda funny because clearly. Joe Didn't look at it that way and he you know pretty much made it very clear it was fathered no no matter what Domin I had the same ethics and values as you do and of course I know you don't mean we should throw a game but I'm not going to go easy on him. I'm GonNa tell whatever I got him. I'm GonNa Throw the Best Adam and for what what I remember. Joe told me he had a particularly productive series and they pretty much knocked. The red sox out of contention for the pennant was there a lot of sibling rivalry among the brothers particularly from Komo sports competitive standpoint and I think again. I didn't know much about Vince. But I did know about dumb and I know Joe had a tremendous amount of respect for them. I once asked him. Veto Dom should have been in the hall of fame and he was very blunt and he said no I said wow I mean she brother he goes well. It's got nothing to do with him. Being my brother I didn't I think he played long enough and I really didn't think that he had the statistics and of course there are a lot of people that were probably disagree with that but of course you know when it came to his business you know demongeot uh show had no problems. He did not have blinders on and he really really judged everybody based on the top standards you know He. He based his his relationship with Williams CBS on the fact that he thought Williams was the best natural hitter. Ever to play the game. Okay but when I would ask him for it about William say well you know Doc Williams was a better here than me but I I was far better all around player. He says I could hit. I could run. I could feel I could drive slugger. I go from first to third better than anybody and and I think one of the things that was special about Joe is that no matter what his personal relationship with you was when it came down to professionalism and business it was all about yeah professionalism and business. He didn't have any biases. We've got about thirty seconds before we have to break here rock but When you think about him playing baseball when do you think he actually realized how good he was? I think when he was a teenager I think that was the whole thing. They were playing Sandlot Ball In the in the bay area pretty much I think he realized they had an actual count and clearly people saw joe play as well as the other Dimaggio Brothers Blake realized what a gifted talented intelligent group of of young men. These guys were again again. I have said this is an outstanding book and I think you can hear it as rock talks to us is called dinner with Dimaggio Memories of an American here on when we come back on the other side. We're we're GONNA talk about him moving to New York playing for the Yankees. What the challenges were and how comfortable he was there and a little bit later on? We'll talk about some of the relationships he's had not only in baseball but on a personal level..
