Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly makes an appearance in a trick-shots video made by a group that includes his son, former Dodgers first-round draft pick Preston Mattingly.

The video starts with the elder Mattingly throwing a baseball to knock off a Giants cap from the head of a man wearing a bear suit. At another point, Preston is several stories high in the basket of a fire truck ladder, tossing a basketball and a football through a basketball hoop below.


The video, which also includes a cameo by former Evansville, Ind., mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel, is a sequel to one made last year.
