33 Years Ago This Week Evansville’s Don Mattingly Named A.L. MVP!
33 years ago today was a big day in baseball history for the Evansville native!
On November 20, 1985 Don Mattingly was named the American League MVP. It was only 6 years after he was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 19th round of the 1979 Amateur draft from Reitz Memorial High School.
Mattingly later became the hitting coach for the Yankees from 2004-2007. Then he became the manager for the Dodgers from 2011-2015 and currently he's staying warm, managing the Miami Marlins.
