Greg Vaughn Biography
Greg Vaughn was born July 3, 1965 and is a former MajorLeague Baseball left fielder and right-handed batter who played for theMilwaukee Brewers (1989-96), San Diego Padres (1996-98), Cincinnati Reds(1999), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (2000-02) and Colorado Rockies (2003).

Vaughn was selected by the Brewers in the first round (4thpick) of the 1986 amateur draft. A slugger whose batting average dropped below.250 as often as rising above it, he compensated with excellent power. He hadthree seasons with at least 100 runs batted in, and four with 30 or more homeruns - including the legendary 1998 season, when he hit 50 to finish 4th in themajor leagues behind Ken Griffey, Jr., Sammy Sosa, and Mark McGwire, who setthe home run record that season. In 1999, he became the only player in majorleague history to be traded after a 50-homer season when the Padres traded himto the Cincinnati Reds. Vaughn's arrival in Cincinnati caused a bit of acontroversy with club ownership and their no facial hair policy. Vaughn styleda goatee that he really didn't want to remove. Fans urged owner Marge Schott tolift the long standing policy that had been in place since 1967 which sheeventually did. On the field, he hit 45 homers and became the second player inmajor league history to hit 40 or more homers in consecutive seasons with twodifferent teams (one year after AndrÃ©s Galarraga became the first).
Throughout his career, Vaughn batted .242 with 355 homeruns, 1072 RBI, 1017 runs, 1475 hits, 284 doubles, 23 triples and 121 stolenbases in 1731 games.
