Biographical Information[edit]

Glenn Vaughan was the nephew of the great Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop, Arky Vaughan. Like so many of the early Houston Colt .45s, Glenn had been a local star. He signed with the Colt .45s for a reported $75,000 and broke in with the Durham Bulls in 1962. His only major league games came with the Colt .45's late in the 1963 season. On September 27th, he was the third baseman in the Colts' famous all-rookie line-up against the New York Mets, in which all players were 21 or younger. It was actually his only appearance at third base in the majors; he was normally a shortstop, but 19-year-old Sonny Jackson started at the position that day.

After his baseball days, Vaughan continued to live in the Houston area. He owned an insurance agency, invested in real estate, played golf and ran marathons. See an obituary at
