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. Through extensive interviews with Mattingly and those close to him, author Mike Shalin will reveal in Donnie Baseball the inner complexities of a mean who learned how to deal with very difficult and personal disappointments while under the scrutiny of the New York media.
