Where They Are Now: Mo Vaughn

Great article in today's New York Times about former Red Sox', Angels' and Mets' first baseman Mo Vaughn, who has found life after baseball in rehabbing lower-income housing in the New York City area. Vaughn's an interesting and smart guy, interesting because of his new vocation, interesting because he wore #42 in tribute to Jackie Robinson before Major League Baseball retired it for all teams (save the Yankees, where Mariano Rivera will be able to wear the number until he retires) and smart because, if you read the article closely, you'll see that Vaughn splits his time between New York City and Florida (read in between the lines: Florida has no personal income tax). At any rate, it's a long feature, and worthy of a read.
