Ken Keltner, the Cleveland Indians third baseman who made two outstanding backhand plays to stop Joe DiMaggio's record 56-game hitting streak, has died of an apparent heart attack.
Keltner, who was 75, was found dead Thursday at his suburban New Berlin apartment.DiMaggio went 0-for-3 on July 17, 1941, when Keltner made his two stops at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium, and then threw DiMaggio out both times. The golden anniversary of the streak was this summer and Keltner was honored along with the former New York Yankees star.
