Donnie Baseball: The Definitive Biography of Don Mattingly Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The exhaustive research of sports biographer Mike Shalin sheds new light on a baseball legend, exposing the Hall of Famer's moxie and lifelong dedication to baseball in this engaging biography. The in-depth research follows Don Mattingly, an incredibly talented and hard-working player, who, during his time with the Yankees, became one of the most beloved and popular players in the glorious history of their franchise. An insightful review of Mattingly's career, including his going from a 19th-round draft choice to the 1985 American League MVP to his true motivation behind his retirement in 1995 and his thoughts on his young coaching. Donnie Baseball: The Definitive Biography of Don Mattingly is a must-read not only for passionate Yankee fans, but for all baseball enthusiasts who want to become better historians of the game.

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 1980's and early 1990's. 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.
