 Biographical Information
Paul Householder is actually one of four major league players with that last name. He played eight years in the major leagues, most notably for the Cincinnati Reds in the early 1980's. He also played nine years in the minors, hitting 96 home runs.
Born in 1958 in Columbus, OH, he was a second round draft pick by the Reds in 1976. An outfielder, he came up originally at age 21 in 1980 when the Reds outfield consisted of George Foster, Dave Collins, and Ken Griffey Sr.. In spite of the competition, he was a regular by 1982 (at which point the other outfielders were Cesar Cedeno and Eddie Milner).
He was traded by the Reds shortly after Pete Rose became the manager, and after the season the St. Louis Cardinals traded him to the Milwaukee Brewers, where he became a regular outfielder alongside Robin Yount and Ben Oglivie. After that, he played only briefly in 1986 and 1987 and was finished.
