Today the Drive lost it's clean up hitter. Legendary caller "Mel from Fullerton" has passed away. Mel was amongst the first supporters of the show and nobody broke it down quite like he did. The Drive will never be the same.

Mel's perspective was unique. The Halo family lost a passionate fan! Mel is 2nd from the left in this linked photo

RevHF on Mel: All of us are reading this blog and listening to sports call in shows because of the joy, intrigue and fulfillment we find in sports. MEL was all of us. His untimely passing reveals why he had a lot of time on his hand to call THE DRIVE each and every afternoon, but in doing so he set the bar for all of us to maintain our allegiance to this team.

MEL never once complained about his life or personal situation on the air that I can recall. When the team was at its most maddeningly frustrating, MEL was the rare Angels fan who kept focused on the possibilities for success that were ingrained into the fabric of this team. Nobody other than Mike Scioscia himself took it one game at a time as evenly as MEL from Fullerton. When the radio waves of early 21st century broadcasts reach some distant galaxy a hundred thousand light years away, future civilizations may become transfixed with the possibilities of lineup constructions from the detailed missives sent out to all of us from the thoughtfulness of MEL from Fullerton. Godspeed.
