Albie Pearson, who was the center-fielder in the 1950s and 1960s for the Washington Senators, the Baltimore Orioles, and the Los Angeles Angels, until he had to quit due to a ruptured disc in his back, shared many interesting highlights of his professional career in baseball with a crowd of about 50 people at the Bella Vista Historical Museum on Sunday, Oct. 28. He then stayed for another hour to sign autographs, proceeds from which went to the museum.
Albie and his wife Helen, now married for 65 years, recently moved to Bella Vista from southern California to be near three of their five daughters who live in Northwest Arkansas. Albie went grocery shopping at Allen's, where manager Steve Allen welcomed him as a new customer, and when he found out who he was, Allen invited him to present a baseball program at the museum.Community on 11/07/2018
