Newest Yankee is rocking a Don Mattingly mustache

Matt Carpenter with a Yankees helmet on

Matt Carpenter was just signed by the New York Yankees days ago, and he has already reminded fans of a pinstripes legend.

Carpenter is complying with the Yankees’ facial hair policy by restricting his hair to just above the upper lip. His thick and full mustache, coupled with his lefthanded swing, had many thinking “Don Mattingly” immediately.

Others not only noticed Carpenter’s resemblance to “Donnie Baseball,” but they also had some jokes about the situation.

Now that he has the look, all Carpenter needs to do is win a batting title, make a few All-Star Games and win AL MVP to match Mattingly. That shouldn’t be at all difficult to accomplish.

As of Tuesday, Carpenter had homered in two of his first five games with the Yankees. That’s not bad for the former three-time All-Star who was recently let go by Texas.
