In July 2011, Hall created history by becoming the first player to kick 100 goals for three AFL teams.
Hall began his career at the St Kilda Football Club where he twice led the club's goalkicking in 19.
His most memorable performance for the Saints was his 3-goal burst during a five-minute period in the second quarter of the AFL 1997 Grand Final, in which put his side in a strong position going into half time, despite St.
Kilda going on to be defeated by the Adelaide Crows by 31 points at the MCG.
He also featured heavily in the AFL's promotion in Sydney, gaining a similarly high-profile to Tony Lockett which saw him featured in a 2006 AFL and Swans joint promotion known as "Barry Hall Hall".
The former junior boxing champion's AFL career has been marred by a reputation for on-field aggression, which has earned him the label of football "wild man" and he became one of the most feared players on the field.
He kicked a bag of goals in that game and in Round 20, against the Geelong Cats, he kicked five goals and one behind.Several controversial and highly publicised incidents (often called "brain snaps" by the media) and tribunal appearances have interrupted his career and contributed to a change of clubs.Hall was born in Victoria and grew up in Broadford, where he played his junior football. At the age of 12 he moved to Melbourne to pursue a boxing career. After playing for the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup and attracting the eye of talent scouts, he decided to focus on football. He helped fill the void of the record-breaking forward Tony Lockett, who had moved to the Swans the previous season.He left St Kilda at the end of 2001 in style, kicking a goal after the final siren of a Round 22 match against Hawthorn to win the match.One of the main reasons for leaving was the rise of Nick Riewoldt, Justin Koschitzke and the recruitment of Fraser Gehrig, as well as salary cap constraints.
