What does Don Mattingly have against bears, anyway?

Nothing, as long as they are wearing a Dodgers’ hat. Confused? Hang with me for a second.

You see, Don Mattingly and his son, Preston, were invited to participate in a “trick shot” video with some other local sports stars from Evansville, Indiana. The group calls themselves “Trickwinkle.”

Among the various trick shots, Preston makes one from the top of a fire department ladder truck. Some organizations might not be too thrilled about one of their farmhands taking part in a potentially dangerous stunt, but keep in mind that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has a habit of rappelling down buildings.

According to the website of the local NBC affiliate, Trickwinkle raised $1,000 for the Evansville’ Boys and Girls Club through sponsorships and t-shirt sales, so mission accomplished, I guess.

    Does anyone else think that Mattingly looks surprisingly like Torre in that top photo?

    I miss the Selleck mustache. I guess The Boss and Mr Burns finally convinced him to shave.

      Outstanding! Nice to see someone rocking the Candy Striped IU Warm Ups as well.
      D.J: Donnie’s issue isn’t with all Bears. Just those wearing Giants hats.
