Don Mattingly Day, 8/31/97

Mattingly Day, 1997. It was the last day before players could be activated to qualify for the post-season roster, so I was hoping the Yankees had this great plan to activate him after a year off so he could help them defend their title. A younger Steinbrenner may have gone for the stunt.
You can imagine my disappointment when Mattingly showed up in a suit.
