* TruthInTelevision: Don Mattingly was actually benched by the New York Yankees - along with three teammates - in 1991 for not getting a haircut. When he became the manager of the Miami Marlins in 2016, Mattingly enacted his own facial hair ban during Spring Training, something he didn't do during the previous five years, when he managed the Los Angeles Dodgers.
