Yankee Stadium Legacy: #69 Don Mattingly (Again)

Don Mattingly combined the art of hitting and fielding to a near perfection. The Yankees first basemen was awarded for his glove work with nine Gold Glove Awards in his career which is good for second most all time at his position. Mattingly also carried a .307 lifetime batting average through his final season in 1995 including an AL batting title in 1984 when he hit .343. In 1986 Mattingly had a personal best 238 base hits leading the Major Leagues.

69 days until Yankees Opening Day.
