INDIANAPOLIS — He was on a bus heading to a high school regional baseball game when Preston Mattingly was drafted into the ranks of professional baseball. The radio was playing, his teammates were listening, Mattingly’s name was announced.

The Dodgers picked the 18-year-old, 6-foot-3, 200-pound powerhouse shortstop, 31st overall in the 2006 Major League Draft.

Mattingly had a feeling it was going to happen. It was impossible to miss. He knew the workings of baseball intimately. His father is Don Mattingly.

Scouts had attended games in his junior and senior seasons, 28 of 30 teams had shown up to check out the baseball phenom going by the name Mattingly. The Yankees had taken him on one of George Steinbrenner’s private jets for practice.
