Happy 50th birthday to former Yankee slugger Don Mattingly. I’ve met Mattingly probably close to 20 times and he always did his best to make sure fans walked away from the experience with an autograph. I used to look forward to the Yankees coming to town just to catch a glimpse of Don Mattingly in the flesh.
Also born today: actor Joey Lawrence, singer Luther Vandross and dictator Adolph Hitler. You don’t really see anyone these days being named Adolph. He sort of ruined that name for the world.
