Former New York Yankees first baseman, Don Mattingly, took the time to meet a young girl who happens to be named "Mattingly". The girl's parents named her after him.

Don Mattingly, and his team the Miami Marlins, who he now manages, are in New York facing the Mets in a 4 game series at Citi Field.

Before the game, there was a family in the stands holding up a sign saying, "Hi Don....My name is Mattingly"

Don Mattingly noticed, and he called her and her family down to the dugout so he could meet them and sign some autographs.

Class act "Donnie Baseball" Great video!!!
