|Notes||"Baseball is Bob Melvin's life. Ever since he started playing the sport as a kid growing up in San Mateo County in the 1970s, he has been inexorably attracted to it. As a ballplayer, he progressed through Menlo-Atherton High School and various youth leagues. Later, he signed a professional contract and worked his way through the minor leagues to the point where he carved out a 10-year major league career as a backup catcher. Late in 2002, he was named manager of the Seattle Mariners." [2009.030.121]|
