|Player Biography||Melvin Thomas “Mel” Ott was a New York Giants hero for 22 seasons, during which he emerged as one of the game’s premiere sluggers. As a 17-year-old “Boy Wonder” in 1926, Ott’s size belied his power. Using an unorthodox batting style in which he lifted his right foot prior to impact, he smashed 511 home runs, then a National League record, hitting 30 or more in a season eight times and winning or sharing the league lead on six occasions. “Master Melvin” earned 11 consecutive All-Star selections and batted .304 lifetime with 488 doubles and 1,860 RBI.|
