Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about Paul O'Neill

Transactions

Acquired: November 3, 1992 - Paul was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds along with Joe DeBerry in return for Roberto Kelly. Unarguably one of the all-time great deals the Yankees have made in their illustrious history. Paul would go on to win four World Series Championships in pinstripes and became a fan favorite in the process.

Highlights

August 31, 1995: Paul goes 4-for-5 with 8 RBI and 3 HR as the Yankees defeat the Angels 11-6 at Yankee Stadium. In a game that would go on to become a YES "Yankee classic," Paul gave the Yankees an early 3-0 lead with a three-run homerun in the bottom of the first off Angels starter, and lefty, Brian Anderson. Paul came up again in the second inning, again against Brian Anderson and again touched him up for a three-run home run. Two innings, two home runs and 6 RBI for Paul. The second home run gave the Yankees a 7-0 lead and also spelled the end of Anderson's day. Angels reliever Mike Harkey then settled down to retire 8 of 9 batters until Paul came up to lead off the bottom of the 5th and went deep for the third time on the afternoon, increasing the Yankee lead to 8-1. By the time Paul batted again in the bottom of the 6th, Mike Harkey had been replaced with Bob Patterson and the score was now 8-4. Paul could "only" manage an RBI single this time around, plating Pat Kelly with the Yankee's 9th run of the day and Paul's 8th RBI. Paul's bid for a fourth home run ended quietly on a three pitch strikeout (looking) to start the 8th against Troy Percival.

September 17, 1999:  Paul goes 3-for-5 with 6 RBI, two doubles and a home run in a 9-4 Yankees win in Cleveland.  His two run double in the first off Jaret Wright gave the Yankees a quick 2-0 lead.  He came up again in the second inning with Chuck Knoblauch aboard and smacked a three-run homer, again off Wright, to give the Yankees and starter Roger Clemens a 5-0 lead.  His second double and sixth RBI came in the 8th off Cleveland reliever Sean DePaula, driving in Derek Jeter with the Yankees 9th run of the day.
