Repack Haiku #175 (Mo Vaughn)

Last Red Sox player
To wear number forty-two
To honor Jackie
1993 Topps #51 Mo Vaughn

Vaughn was one of 13 players grandfathered in when MLB retired Jackie Robinson's number in 1997. Ironically, he and another "Mo" were the last two to ever wear the number (other than Jackie Robinson Day of course!)

  1. Very cool. I knew about Mariano, but didn't know about Vaughn.
