I met Mel and his wife at a bagel shop outside Cooperstown a few years back. We talked about the Expos (it was during Dawson's induction weekend.) Friendly,charismatic gentleman. Sent me a copy of his book when he got back home to Phoenix. The few folks I know who worked with him had nothing but good things to say about him. One of those baseball lifers few fans know but was known to a great many inside the game.
