    Mel Ott Photo File

    Here we go with a photo file on Mel Ott. I'll start it off. Feel free to contribute a photo or two on Master Melvin. First is Mel broadcasting Detroit tigers baseball with Van Patrick, 1958. Second is Mel with Mel Parnell on a local TV show in New orleans, 1953. Third is Mel with that classic stance of his.

    Mel Ott`s good friend and co-Giant great Carl Hubbell also died tragically in an auto accident in 1988.He died exactly 30 years to the date that Ott died(Nov. 21st)!Incredibly,Mrs.Ott survived this wreck.I have NEVER read anywhere of anybody ever speaking ill of Mel Ott as a person nor as a player.

    Looks like you're right. I just assumed it was first because of where Ott is situated.
