Mele took over the the Twins just two months into their 1961 debut season.  He is most famous for leading the Twins to the 1965 American League Pennant.  Their 102 wins that season are still a team record.

Note: upon comparing this signature to some rather shaky examples that other collectors have received from Mele over the last few years, and taking his age (92) into account, this looks far too smooth to me.  My guess is that Mr. Mele is probably no longer able to sign his mail and has a family member handling it for him.  It doesn't bother me personally for the purposes of this little project, but I thought I'd mention it for anyone else out there who has designs on writing to him.
