The 50 Greatest Moments in New York Yankees History

35. Don Mattingly Hits 10 HRs in 8 games

Date: 7/18/1987
Ah, Donnie Baseball. He spent his entire 13-season career in pinstripes but never made it to the World Series. Hell, the Yankees only made the playoffs once during his tenure. But that doesn't take anything away from Mattingly's great career. One high-point came in the summer of 1987 when he hit an MLB record 10 homers over a stretch of eight games. All that and a .307 career BA yet they still won't let him into the Hall. #smh #cmonson
