    Death of Joe DiMaggio

    Following lung cancer surgery on October 14, 1998, Joe DiMaggio fell into an 18-hour coma on December 11. The coma forced his lawyer, Morris Engelberg, to admit that the positive reports he had been feeding to the press were greatly exaggerated. He claimed Joe made him promise not to tell even his family about his condition.

    Joe was finally taken home on January 19, 1999. Days later, NBC broadcast a premature obituary; Engelberg claimed he and DiMaggio were watching TV and saw it. His last words, according to Engelberg, were "I'll finally get to see Marilyn." However, the day after DiMaggio's death, a hospice worker who cared for him gave a radically different account to The New York Post.

    DiMaggio finally died on March 8, 1999. He was buried on March 11, 1999 in Colma, California, just south of his longtime home of San Francisco.

    Trivia

    In the 1995 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Past Tense", a policeman from the 2020s called the 1999 New York Yankees the best team he'd ever seen. While it could be argued the 1998 team was better, it is considered remarkable that a television program that aired in 1995 could have even predicted such a successful season for a specific team.
