Paul Andrew O’Neill, an American who played right field in Major League Baseball for 17 seasons, was born on February 25, 1963. From 1985 to 1992, he played for both the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees.
281 home runs, 1,269 runs batted in, and 2,107 hits, and those stats contributed to O’Neill’s lifetime batting average of.288. He won the 1994 American League hitting championship with a.359 average. He was a five-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion.
O’Neill is the lone participant who has been a member of the victorious squad in all three perfect games. When Tom Browning pitched a perfect game for the Reds in 1988, he was playing the right field for them.
In the perfect game that David Wells pitched for the Yankees in 1998, he caught the final out (a fly ball), and in the perfect game that David Cone pitched for the Yankees in 1999, he doubled and made a diving catch in right field.
After retiring from baseball, O’Neill started a job as a Yankees announcer on the YES Network. For the time being, he acts as the network’s primary game analyst and color commentator.
