Stupid question: Is the Brewers' Bill Hall related to Mel Hall of the cubs/Indians in the '80s?

His player bio (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/team/player_career.jsp?player_id=407849) indicates his father is named William, so, no.

I suppose I could have done some more research. And we're sure his father wasn't William "Mel" Hall?

Heh. No, his dad is Melvin Hall, Jr. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/h/hallme01.shtml).
