One of the biggest names in Sports Entertainment is a HUGE fan of one of the biggest names in Baseball..and Evansville.

I stumbled upon this post yesterday were WWE Superstar/Actor John Cena talked about his favorite baseball player of all time. He's from around Boston, so it came as quite the surprise that his favorite player is a New York Yankee great, Don Mattingly.

Mattingly, as you know, is a proud Evansville native, so it was cool to see a star of Cena's caliber show some love to an Evansville boy. Not only that, but he recalls the time where he got to throw the first pitch of a game to Don Mattingly. The interview is a few years old, but it's something that I haven't seen before, so I figured a lot of people haven't either. Check it out:
