3 of 7

Ryan Braun 2008-12, 2015

Despite winning the Rookie of the Year award in 2007, Braun didn’t become an All-Star until his second season. Braun won the first-year player award by hitting .324 with 34 home runs and 97 RBIs. His .634 slugging percentage led the National League.

Braun made his first all-star team by hitting .286 with 23 home runs and 66 RBIs in the first half in 2008. The Brewers’ former third baseman and left fielder has been selected to the All-Star game six times and played in the mid-summer classic five times. In 11 all-star game at-bats, Braun has three hits.

That includes two triples and a double. His only RBI came in the 2012 game. Braun went 2-3 with a run scored and an RBI in the 2012 game. The five-time all-star starter scored the first run of the game when a Pedro Sandoval triple drove him in. Braun later was stranded at third after he tripled.

Braun also scored a run in the 2015 game after tripling.

Greg Vaughn 1993, ’96, ’98, 2001

Greg Vaughn played one season at the University of Miami. Vaughn missed Piazza by one season. Vaughn lettered with the Hurricanes in 1986. Vaughn’s 63 walks in 1986 are eighth in Miami school history. He also struck out 60 times. Vaughn only got at-bats in two of his all-star games appearances.

He went two for two with a run scored and two RBIs. Vaughn got his at-bat in 1993 playing for the National League and 1998 in the American. Vaughn scored the final run of the 1993 game. He came around on a Terry Steinbach double in a 9-3 American League victory. Vaughn’s eighth-inning single in the 1998 game drove in two runs.

That cut the American League deficit to 10-6 in a 13-8 loss.
