Mattingly goes drag for 'Nutcracker' portrayal

Posted on: December 19, 2011 7:13 pm
 
Don Mattingly was a star player for the Yankees back in the 1980s and is the current manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he recently put a different talent on display in his hometown of Evansville, Indiana. Not only did he take part in a play, but he portrayed a member of the opposite gender.

Mattingly played Mother Ginger in the Evansville Ballet's performance of the holiday classic: The Nutcracker. You gotta give props to Mattingly, as not many in his profession would put their pride on the line for such a production, but he has never really acted like he's more important than the average person anyway.

The full television news story is available via streaming video on tristatehomepage.com.

Here's a grainy (sorry, the video was tiny) screen-grab of Donnie Baseball in drag.

Saw the CNN piece on this - it was great!  He's having fun - the kids are having a blast - really genuine! Mattingly is the polar opposite of a stuck up - up tight ego maniac sportsfigure.

Hope that bad back of his held up - all of that twirling and leaping. I hope Jimmy Key and Randy Velarde don't see this. Donnie Baseball will never hear the end of it. Bet he already heard from Posada and O'Neill.
