Agree Bill Melton

Happy birthday Bill #68. I really enjoyed watching you play as a kid and also enjoy your commentary work today. Wishing you many more to come.

Met him one time at a Golf outing, seemed like great guy. Another bad break for a Sox player with him hurting his back and was just never the same after the injury.

Melton claimed he was 58 on the postgame show after Garfein wished him a happy 68th. Had to do a double-take, because Melton doesn't look 68 (probably looks closer to 58), but I also knew there's no way he was 17 in 1972.

I always thought he would be a nice announcer when Hawk retires.

Melton will be 110 years old when Harrelson "retires".

He is a nice guy, at least in my interactions with him.

I'd take him on the radio too, but then again, I'd take a thimble and a blind rabbit than Farmer and DJ. We have the worst radio team in baseball.
