This Is Don Mattingly As Mother Ginger In A Ballet Rendition Of The Nutcracker

The Dodgers manager's wife, Lori, had introduced him to the ballet. He "thought it would be fun" to join the company in his hometown of Evansville (Ind.), and he made his debut on Saturday night—blonde wig, makeup, blue dress, and all, thinking it "would be funny." Mattingly didn't dance, but based on this footage from a local TV news report, at one point he might have told one of his fellow performers to steal third. [The Big Lead, via Tristate]
