Audio Podcast: Charlie Vaughn Interview

Charlie Vaughn was never a superstar in the big leagues. In fact, he played in only two major league games. That's what makes his story so interesting. Bill Shanks talks with Charlie Vaughn in this premium podcast.

The 1966 Atlanta Braves were special. They were the first Braves' team in Atlanta after the franchise moved from Milwaukee.

There were a lot of great players on the first Atlanta team: Hank Aaron, Eddie Matthews, Phil Niekro, Joe Torre, and Felipe Alou.

But you don't have to be a star on that team to have a great story, as we found out by talking with left-handed pitcher Charlie Vaughn.
