This Day in Reds History: Rose runs his hitting streak to 37 games

Andy Lyons

On this day in Reds history, Pete Rose collected two hits against the Mets.

On this day in 1899, the Reds released catcher Farmer Vaughn (Vin Scully: "And that caught stealing is brought to you by Farmer Vaughn.") Although he had a cup of coffee with the Reds in their American Association days in 1886, it would be six more years until Vaughn joined the club for good. In between, he played for Louisville and the Cincinnati Kelly's Killers in the AA, and New York in the Players' League. His second stint with the Reds lasted eight seasons, from 1892 to 1899. During that time, he hit .285/.319/.385 (85 OPS+). After the Reds released him, Vaughn returned to the minor leagues until 1906. He died in Cincinnati in 1914 at the age of 49.
