Cal Baseball: Andrew Vaughn Collects Two Hits in Minor-League Season Finale
Andrew Vaughn celebrated the final day of his first season of professional baseball by contributing a single and a double as the Winston-Salem Dash posted a 3-0 win over the Lynchburg Hellcats on Monday night in the Advanced A Carolina League.
The former Cal star finished the season batting .252 with eight doubles, three home runs and 21 RBIs in 29 games with the Dash.
Vaughn, a native of Santa Rosa, was the No. 3 overall pick by the Chicago White Sox in the June amateur baseball draft.
He batted .600 in three games with the White Sox’ rookie league team and promoted to the Low-A Kannapolis Intimidators. Vaughn, a two-time All-American for the Bears, batted .253 with seven doubles, two home runs, 11 RBIs and 14 runs scored in 23 games with the Intimidators.
It was a productive season for Vaughn, but a long one. Cal played its first game way back on Feb. 15 -- 6 1/2 months ago.
