On his birthday, watch Mo Vaughn hit a 505-foot home run

Vaughn is best known for his years in Boston, where he won the 1995 AL MVP and posted a triple-slash line of .319/.408/.578 between '94 and '98. But one of the most majestic homers came at the tail end of the big first baseman's career, with the Mets in 2002.

Since retiring in '03, Vaughn has taken up a meaningful new career -- he's a real estate developer focusing exclusively on affordable housing. His efforts were documented in an MLB Network segment which you can watch below. Happy 46th, Mo.
