Who has the longest hitting streak in history?

The person with the longest hitting streak in baseball history is Joe DiMaggio. He hit safely in 56 consecutive games in the 1941 season when he played for the New York Yankees. This means that in 56 straight games, DiMaggio got at least one hit each game. It's an incredible record because hitting a baseball can be very difficult, and going 56 games in a row with a hit is extremely challenging. No one has been able to break DiMaggio's record yet. Some players have come close, but none have surpassed his amazing achievement.
