Toms River, NJ, Apr. 23, 2011—Bob Salomon, Co-Creator and driving force of “A Glove of Their Own,” an award winning book, is pleased to announce Don Mattingly and Mattingly Charities has joined the “Glove Team.”

Mattingly, or Donnie Baseball, as he is so often referred to as is a lifelong baseball figure. After playing 14 seasons with the New York Yankees, he now serves as Manager for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

“I couldn’t be happier with Don joining the Glove Team. His kindness and humble spirit is amazing and something we could all learn from,” Salomon said. “Donnie Baseball’s professional career speaks for itself and the work Mattingly Charities provides the youth is what this movement is all about.”

Mattingly Charities Inc. is a 501(c) (3) organization founded by Don Mattingly, Yankee Legend and current manager of the L.A. Dodgers. Donnie created this charity to provide funding and services for equipment for baseball, softball, other sports, and related youth development activities, for the benefit of underprivileged youth, youth leagues, and social welfare and related organizations. 100% of the efforts of the organization will be focused on
these activities.

“Mattingly Charities is proud to be associated with Bob Salomon and the Award-winning book A Glove of Their Own,” Skip Shaw, President of Mattingly Charities said. “The simple and powerful message embodied in this beautiful book is directly aligned with Mattingly Charities’ mission to help provide baseball and softball equipment to underprivileged youth.”

A Glove of Their Own is for the kids who toss the bat to choose captains and pick teams, playing in a neighborhood field or an empty lot. You’ll find no coaches, no concession stands, and sometimes just an old bat and ball. But once the first pitch is thrown, you’ll find the real heart and soul of America. You’ll find baseball in its purest form. And the publisher of A Glove of Their Own wants to help all kids know this simple joy by donating a portion of the proceeds to help bring equipment to the kids who play without it.

    This book, A Glove of Their Own, is a great read! I loved this book because it brought me back to my youth baseball days when a bunch of us kids would just organize our own game in ANY space and with any equipment we could find. Simply awesome!

    Bob Salomon has been doing a tremendous job of spreading the good word of this book and getting many people involved in helping kids… From big names, like Don Mattingly, to not-so-big-names, like myself, Don is finding good-hearted individuals to help his cause. Nice job Bob!
