Vernon Wells takes as much pride in his defense as he does in his offense.
Saving a run with a great defensive play can be just as meaningful to a team's success as driving a runner home.
It's his dedication to being a complete baseball player that made Vernon a foundation of the Toronto Blue Jays organization for many years and keeps him a valuable player for the New York Yankees.
Through his charitable organization, the Perfect 10 Charity, Vernon and his wife, Charlene, strive to support and protect children in need.
