#318 Mel Hall

Why this card is awesome: Because with little frame of reference other than the light stanchion in the background, I'm inclined to think Hall was about 200 feet tall.

Cool stat: Seven players have had 5 seasons with between 17 and 19 homers. Hall was, by far, the worst of them when ranked by OPS+.

I was a fan of Hall when I first began following baseball. That was, of course, until I read the many, many accounts of Hall being a deplorable human being.

The only citizen of Montreal who didn't play for the Expos. The wife of Hall was a woman from Montreal and the baseball player had his home in the town.

Now Hall joins the ranks of former major-leaguers in prison.
