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 451-198 overall and 205-124 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.
