Bob Melvin Speaking FeeOakland Athletics manager and former MLB catcher Bob Melvin was inducted into the Arizona Fall League Hall of Fame on Friday, November 8. Melvin, who is a two-time MLB Manager of the Year, began his managerial experience in the Arizona Fall League with the Maryvale Saguaros in 1999. As a part of the ceremony his number 3 Saguaro uniform number was retired during a pre-game ceremony. “I’m truly honored by this. When you see some of the names you’re joining, it certainly is humbling,” said Melvin prior to his induction.

The Arizona Fall League is the MLB’s premier proving ground for prospects and managers alike. Melvin credits the Arizona Fall League exposure of managing a team comprised of prospects from five different organizations with turning him into a Major League manager. “You were always aware of being watched,” Melvin recalled. “And in taking with the general managers from the different organizations at the time, you realized those conversations had an impact in getting you on the map.”

Melvin played 10 season in the Major Leagues with 8 different teams from 1985-1994 prior to beginning his managerial career in 2003 with the Seattle Mariners. In 2007 he was named the National League Manager of the Year with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and was named the American League Manager of the Year in 2012 with the Oakland Athletics. He is one of the front runners for the American League Manger of the Year award in 2013.
