Career highlights and awards

Edward Kenneth Taubensee (born October 31, 1968 in Beeville, Texas) is a former catcher in Major League Baseball.

Taubensee played for three different ballclubs during his career: the Cleveland Indians (1991, 2001), Houston Astros (1992-1994), and Cincinnati Reds (1994-2000). He made his major league debut on May 18, 1991, and played his final game on October 7, 2001. He is known primarily for being the player received by the Astros from the Indians in exchange for outfielder Kenny Lofton, a trade that many consider to be one of the most lopsided moves made in the 1990's, as Lofton went on to have an excellent, possibly Hall of Fame-caliber career, while Taubensee played less than three full seasons with the Astros and posted wholly-uninspiring numbers.

Taubensee is known in Houston as "The Model" because of the way he strutted his stuff on the runway when the Astros unveiled their new uniforms in 1994.
