Oh wow, look at that... I am probably weird but I love looking at gravestones. They always tell such a story.
Great photo!

Lovely photo! I'd never seen Joe DiMaggiio's grave before. What an interesting sight!

Grace, dignity, and elegance personified...that's a wonderful way to be remembered.

Are the baseballs brought and left there by people visiting the gravesite?

I don't think it's weird or morbid...at least if I don't go at night...which I never have and probably will never do because I'm a chicken that way. But I think it's really interesting to see how they or their family have decided to memorilize their lives.

Although there were no notes, I'm sure the baseballs, bats and mitts were left by fans. A nice tribute to a man who obviously meant a lot to many people.
