Don Mattingly Net Worth $25 million

Don has played baseball ever since he was young, was quickly well-known for being ambidextrous when he started by pitching in Little League Baseball, and later playing American Legion baseball. He attended Reitz Memorial High School, playing with the school’s baseball team, leading it to a record of 59 straight victories and winning the state championship in 1978. After matriculating he was bound for the Indiana University’s State Sycamores on a scholarship, but decided not to attend college after learning that he had been selected by the New York Yankees. He signed with a $23,000 bonus, which started his rise in net worth.

Mattingly started in the Minor Leagues playing with the Oneonta Yankees, and there it was discovered that he lacked a bit in speed and power. He played there for a few years and with the Columbus Clippers before being called up to the majors, making his debut in September 1982 as a replacement. He spent most of his rookie season as an outfielder and first baseman, then in 1984 he was promoted to be the full-time first baseman of the team. He slowly improved, and had his breakout season the following year, getting an MVP award for his efforts. He continued to place highly in terms of statistics and became well-known for his defense that eventually earned him a Gold Glove Award, the first of nine he would get throughout his career. In 1987, he tied the record for scoring a home run in eight consecutive games, and continued each season with consistently strong performances. He struggled in 1990 due to back problems which were caused by an injury earlier in his career, so his statistics dropped somewhat, and he needed to undergo therapy during the off season. For his 13 year career, the Yankees never got to appear in the World Series despite Mattingly’s performances. Eventually Mattingly went unsigned in 1996, and he then retired the following year.

After retirement, Don became a special instructor for the Yankees for seven seasons. He then became the hitting coach and was considered for the manager position during 2007, but was passed over for Joe Girardi, and so Don then went to become the hitting coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Eventually he became the team’s manager and despite the injury-ridden Dodgers roster, helped the team recover. He finished second in voting for National League Manager of the Year during that time. He helped lead the team to three consecutive playoffs, the first to do so of any Dodgers manager. In 2015, Mattingly and the team agreed that he step down from the position. A few days later it was reported that he was given a contract to manage the Miami Marlins.

For his personal life, Don was married to Kim Sexton from 1979-2007; they have three sons. two of whom have tried careers in professional baseball. In 2010, Mattingly married Lori, and they now live in Miami.
