Today people are mourning the loss of Mel Antonen, a South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame member now being remembered by Major League Baseball, the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles.
Mel Antonen was a friend, fellow scribe, and really nice guy. He loved life, and made me laugh hysterically each year at Winter Meetings. We’d tell stories and he dumb jokes, the two of us, usually late in a near-empty workroom. He died from COVID & other illnesses. R.I.P., Mel.
So sad to hear that Mel Antonen died in his sleep last night at 64. He had been battling an autoimmune disease and then COVID. It proved to be too much. He was one of the top baseball writers of our generation and one of the truly good guys in our industry.
Mel Antonen leaves us much too soon, but not without lasting memories of a kind, thoughtful soul who was also a dogged reporter and a fine storyteller for USA Today and other outlets. RIP, my friend.
