NEW YORK (CBS 2) — It may be spring, but the boys of summer are geared up to take the field for the 2011 season.

Although some milestones will fall this year, there is one that has stood the test of time: Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak.

Kostya Kennedy, a senior editor at Sports Illustrated, says that record will likely never be broken.

His new book is called “56, Joe Dimaggio and the Last Magic Number in Sports.”

Kennedy sits down with CBS 2’s Otis Livingston to talk baseball, the record and more.
