Career highlights and awards

Clifford George Melton (January 3, 1912 – July 28, 1986) was an American professional baseball player. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a left-handed pitcher for the New York Giants over parts of eight seasons spanning 1937–44. Listed at 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m), 203 lb (92 kg), Melton batted and threw left-handed. A native of Brevard, North Carolina, he had two different nicknames: Mickey Mouse and Mountain Music. Melton's brother, Rube, played in the Majors for 6 seasons.

Major League career

Melton enjoyed his best year in his rookie season of 1937, when he had a record of 20–9 with a 2.61 earned run average and topped the National League with seven saves, helping the Giants won the NL pennant before losing to the New York Yankees in the 1937 World Series. He also was named to the National League All-Star team in 1942.

For his career, Melton posted an 86–80 record with a 3.42 ERA in 272 pitching appearances (179 starts), and striking out 660 batters while walking 431 in 1453​23 innings of work. In World Series play, he went 0–2 with a 4.91 ERA in three games (two starts), including seven strikeouts and six walks in 11 innings.

Melton died in 1986 in Baltimore, Maryland at the age of 74.


The first time that two brothers hit back-to-back home runs in Major League history was on September 15, 1938, and the pitcher was Melton.[1] The batters were Lloyd Waner and Paul Waner of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The second time was not until April 23, 2013, when B. J. Upton and Justin Upton of the Atlanta Braves homered against Colorado Rockies' Jon Garland.[2][failed verification]
