Pete Rose

In 1978, when Pete Rose amassed a 44-game hitting streak, his nostreak performance fell below that of his lifetime performance. Comparison of DiMaggio’s no-streak performance in 1941 to that of his lifetime performance shows similar patterns, although in DiMaggio’s case the gap between no-streak and lifetime is narrower.
