He was one of the most popular and well-liked New York Yankees of the mid-to-late 1990s when the team was a dominant force in the American League before he retired in 2001.

In Me and My Dad: A Baseball Memoir, written with Burton Rocks, O’Neill looks back on his career as a third-generation professional baseball player.

After serving in World War II, O’Neill’s grandpa played baseball in Billings, Montana, in 1909, and his father, Chick, pitched in the California Leagues.

It’s maybe not surprising, however, that Paul, the youngest of six children, grew up with his father teaching and encouraging him to play baseball and hockey.
