Mo Vaughn, a giant in the community
Vaughn's parents were teachers. He grew up in Connecticut and attended prep school and Seton Hall University, where his baseball coach told him to honor Robinson's legacy. Vaughn said it inspired him. ''I look at it more appreciative of him. He is on a different level in my mind than all other athletes. He was a mental warrior to make it through,'' he said.
