Mel Hall Sentencing Poetic Justice

By Mike Silva ~ June 18th, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized.

I could tell that some were not surprised when they heard about the sentencing of Mel Hall to 45 years in prison for rape. Jon Heyman was quoted on his twitter as saying that Hall was dating a high school girl when he was covering the Yankees in the early nineties. Hall was nearing age 30 when he played in the Bronx.

Talk about two careers, and lives, going in different directions. When Bernie Williams was called up in 1991, Hall was notoriously tough on the 22 year old rookie. Matt McGough, a bat-boy for the team, talked about this when he appeared on my show in 2007.

How ironic that Mell Hall will be spending the rest of his life in jail while Bernie goes on to pursue his second career? Perhaps Mel can spend his free time watching one of the Yankees championship videos from 1996 to 2000.

Shame on Them …They were laughing at his daughters sticking their tongue out and waving bye bye Daddy…Oh they were victims Right!!!!!My friend that was following this case (Mel hall) he is an attorney and was Appaulled at the lies these 2 gir;s were saying and it showed .The Jurys gave him 5 Mintues to find Mr Hall Guilty yes they say it took 90 Minutes yes because they were drinking their coffee in the back They did not care about the Truth …They saw an athelete and Thought of OJ….Discusting!

    Mel Hall is a legend…what happened to him in Texas could happen to anyone who put themselves around kids. Don’t volunteer your time! Lying children are not worth it. These were grown adult women, whores I say. I knew him around the Yankees, he was only in his mid twenties and I heard this girl Shannon is big time liar! Her mom dated Mel supposedly fell in love with him…..and this little (bleep) of a daughter blames him for the TWO affairs her mother had on two husbands. Shannon only is about revenge, she was never touched by Mel Hall. Mel is greatness and Texas should be ashamed of themselves. Don’t even drive through that place, too many redneck racists down there!

    Wow you guys know the story ! I think you people were there when he coached that B” I want to say Your Right Mel Hall is not the bad guy and he is Innocent I feel really bad that they put him 45 Years in with out Evidence or his side of the story because the Alcoholic Judge did not allow his witness to come in she did not want continaunce it was All a Setup to make sure he goes to Jail the judge even sent Predjudie emails about Blacks calling them The N word Discusting …..Hopefully people could see this and say hey it’s time that we fix this Problem and hope to get Mr Hall out of Jail He is the Victim…..

    This is basically the same person posting. She is the girlfriend that he had when he got arrested/indicted/convicted. She goes online and pretends to be many people. The website she has created has since been brought down and was full of lies NOT facts. She also impersonates one of the victims on another site making more false claims and statements.
