The ex-MVP's XL clothing line hits it out of the park
Thirty-nine home runs, 68 walks, 126 RBI, 140 games played and a batting average of .300.
If those numbers — which Mo Vaughn put up at the age of 27 in 1995 while leading the Red Sox to their first playoff appearance in five years and capturing the MVP — look familiar, they should.
Vaughn’s slash numbers in 1995 are nearly identical to what another left-handed BoSox slugger, David Ortiz (38 HR, 80 BB, 127 RBI, 151 GP, .315 BA) is doing this year at the age of 40.
In ‘95, the Hit Dog and his ‘mates took on the Cleveland Indians in the first round of the playoffs, the same squad Ortiz and the ‘16 Sox will face off against tonight, hopefully with better results.
To help us, and you, get into the October spirit as the MLB playoffs begin in earnest, we talked to Vaughn about his new fashion collection, Ortiz’s MVP candidacy and who’s gonna win it all.
