O'Neill won a batting title and five world championships, four with the with the New York Yankees, and one with the Cincinnati Reds. Yankee fans will remember his two triples in the 2000 World Series, the walk he fought for in the 12th inning of Game 1, fouling off endless nastiness from Armando Benitez of the New York Mets, and the memory of his angry fight with his own age and decline – the double he hit late in the tied, brutal, developing classic of a Game 7 in 2001, the double in the gap where he willed his injured knees and thirty-nine-year-old body spinning around second base, charging desperately for third where he could have scored on a fly ball to give the team the lead and coming up a foot short, limping back to the dugout with his head down in disgust.
Now retired, O'Neill is a broadcaster.

His father, Charles O'Neill, pitched in the minors from 1945 to 1948.
