Happy 52nd Birthday, Don Mattingly!

Don Mattingly is my favorite player of all time. He’s the reason my casual Yankee fandom became rabid Yankee fandom in the mid-1980′s.

So, today, I’d like to wish the Hitman, a very happy, 52nd (how is that possible??) birthday.

P.S. if anyone would like to get this poster for me, my birthday is at the end of August.
