Mel Hall, the Cougar Yankee, in Trouble


A generation of Yankee fans grew up loving the mood-swinging antics of slugging RF Mel Hall, the pride of Port Byron, NY.

He kept pet cougars.
He dared tell Yankee legend Stump Merrill how to manage.

And in Joel Sherman's book, "Birth of a Dynasty: Behind the Pinstripes with the 1996 Yankees," Mel proved himself a great mentor to the young Bernie Williams:

["Hall taped "Mr. Zero" to the top of Williams's locker to signify that he meant nothing to the team. One day Hall nearly brought Williams to tears by saying, "Zero, shut up," every time Williams tried to
speak. The more Williams tried, the louder Hall interrupted with repetitive chants of "Zero." "]


Now the latest from the Master: Mel just got indicted for having sexual relations with girls aged 12 and 14!

WHAT WOULD STUMP SAY TO THAT?

knew Mel in 1982 when he played here in Des Moines, Iowa. He was reportedly having sex with a 16 year old usherette and had impregnated a girl the year before in Midland, texas. this doesn't surprise me at all.

I knew Mel when he was a Yankee. I ran into him in the men's room of the Minneapolis airport, and I only have good things to say about him.

He was quite a package then, and good tap dancer as well.

What a POS. He gets to serve 22 1/2 years on this charge and he has more coming. I hope he like prison booty, cause thats all he's gonna get for the rest of his miserable life. Sicko.

nobody could ever know what ft worth has done to a black man.....it's still the 1940's down here folks. They just try to look professional in pinstripe suits instead of white sheets nowadays.....read the link and think twice ......illegal unethical ACLU and NAACP should take a look!!!! HUGE laws broken human kind needs to take of their own better I say. Mel was the best coach my daughter ever had....he got her a FREE full ride scholorship to Mississippi state and we aren't rich. She never dreamed of that. He was the most motivating coach I'd ever seen. Way too much integrity and honor to even LOOK at a child wrong. These girls had motive. He doesn't deserve this at all. It makes me want to stop being a teacher in public school immediately!!!! My whole life could be GONE like his on one stupid evil charge. I see it all the time down here. Girls seem to think if they have sex and oops the boy didn't call me back that means rape. SCary world....I say Mel you go for purgery charges on those whores..........they should be in jail for using taxpayer money to fund stupid games.....sickening
