Don Describes Why Evansville Will Always Be Home
Don Mattingly is known around the world as 'The Hit Man' or 'Donnie Baseball,' both praises from his playing days with the New York Yankees. Around here, he's known for much more than that. He led the Scott Township Little League team to a championship. He's a Reitz Memorial High School hall-of-famer. He's a philanthropist and founder of Mattingly Charities and helps kids right here in our community. To us, he's a hometown hero. To him, this is home. But sometimes he gets the privilege of viewing his home as an outsider - and he's very proud of the way it's changing right before his eyes.
