William Penn Charter School

Baseball History (Rick Mellor Era)

** Rick Mellor, **a 1969 grad, was Penn
Charter's baseball coach for 33 seasons

1979-2011. His career record was 451-218 overall and 206-123 in Inter-Ac play

(a game in 1983 vs. Haverford School was canceled).

His teams won 11 I-A championships -- outrights in 1981, '86, '94, '95,

'97, '05 and '09; shareds in '79, '85, '87 and '88 -- and one private school
state

championship in 2002.

Rick was also officially listed as the co-coach in 2012 with **Jon Cross**.
He has

declined to be recognized for that season's wins and has stated that he had only

minimal involvement with the program.

Below are the names of Rick's assistants and all players who were part of

Rick's teams through their senior year at PC (and going forward under Cross

and/or **David Miller**). Also listed are the number of seasons as
starters, based

on Inter-Ac play, and primary positions.

Thanks to **Rick, John Burkhart, Ed Foley** and **Brian McCloskey**
for their

primary help and to others who confirmed bits of info.
