Larry Melton spent five years in the Pirates organization, reaching the AAA level before calling it a career.  As with many former minor league players that I've written, Mr. Melton included a wonderful full-page letter with his reply.  He is now a mortgage specialist in the Portland area, has a wife and two daughters, and stays involved in baseball by teaching private lessons in his spare time. 

As a side note, I love these 1986 ProCards team sets.  It was the first year I collected minor league cards, and it's such a simple, classic design.  I'm definitely going to try collecting more, from all teams.
