Don Mattingly was one of the most beloved Yankees of all time. He never won, but he was the captain. He was also known as, “The Hit Man” and “Donnie Baseball.” Now, after following Joe Torre to Los Angeles, he enters his first season as a manager of the Dodgers.
Mattingly missed out on the Hall of Fame for the 11th time this year, receiving eight less votes than last year. But Mattingly will always be remembered in New York, as his No. 23 is retired in Monument Park.
Don’t ask me where I got this card. I have no idea, but I happen to like the design.
