Synopsis -

Known affectionately as 'Donnie Baseball,' Don Mattingly was an example of consistency and greatness at first base for the New York Yankees for 14 seasons. A nine-time Gold Glove winner, the mustachioed defensive ace was a fan favorite on the underachieving Yankees teams of the 1980s and early 1990s. Thus, despite his huge popularity, Mattingly was left shackled with the legacy of being one of the greatest Yankees to never play in a World Series. Nonetheless, he is so revered in Yankee lore that he is honored in the famous Monument Park at Yankee Stadium.
