I forgot to post this in the past but I found it extremely interesting that he hit 6 career grand slams, all in 1987. In 1987, 20% of his HR were slams. He hit 6 in 569 AB that year but none in the other 6,434 AB spanning his career. Isn't that odd??

Don Mattingly has always been my favorite player! Yanks need to win this year for Mattingly alone!

I was never a big fan of Mattingly, but you can't deny the greatness of his pornstache.

It was the 80's. Pornstaches were mandatory. Just go look at your old Topps sets and see the All-Star cards. All the great players had one.

Greatest Simpsons Episode Ever.

As a guest on The Simpsons, Don Mattingly is told repeatedly by Mr. Burns to get rid of his sideburns if he wants to play on the team. He tries to explain that he isn't wearing sideburns, but Mr. Burns refuses to listen. He returns later, his sideburns shaved up almost to the top of his head. Mr. Burns isn't impressed. "I thought I told you to trim those sideburns!" He throws him off the team. Mattingly says to himself:
"I still like him better than Steinbrenner."

I love that episode.

Mr. Burns: "You, Strawberry, hit a home run."
Strawberry: "You got it Skip!"
[Strawberry crushes a home run onto the freeway]
Mr. Burns (to Smithers): "See, I told him to do that."

Homer: "You play right field"
DS: "Yes"
Homer: "But I play right field"
DS: "So"
Homer: "Well are you better then me?"
DS: "Well I've never seen you play but.....Yes"
