LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) – Former American League MVP Mo Vaughn is promising great improvements for tenants of an affordable housing complex in Lawrence, Mass., that his company recently bought.

The Norwalk, Conn., native and former Boston Red Sox first baseman, who cofounded Omni New York LLC when he retired from baseball, tells the Eagle-Tribune that his company plans $6 million in improvements to the 168-unit Sycamore Village complex that will include new appliances and exterior renovations.

Plans also include the installation of security cameras and outdoor lighting.

Vaughn says his company does not tolerate guns, drugs and criminal behavior.

Planning Director Michael Sweeney says Omni’s purchase is a “major reinvestment” in the city.

Vaughn played 12 years in the majors and won the AL MVP award in 1995.
