Paul O'Neill (baseball player)

Paul Andrew O'Neill (born February 25, 1963) is a former Major League Baseball player who played with the Cincinnati Reds (1985-1992) and New York Yankees (1993-2001). O'Neill was well-known for his passion and emotion on the field, often throwing objects in times of frustration. He obtained five World Series championships (1990, 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000).

O'Neill won the American League batting title in 1994 with a .359 average. He was a five-time All-Star, playing in 1991, 1994, 1995, 1997, and 1998. O'Neill is the only player in Major League Baseball history to play on the winning side of three perfect games (pitched by Tom Browning, David Wells, and David Cone).
