October 19, 2013 Albie Pearson and Bobby Locke

Albie Pearson
When he came up with the Washington Senators in 1958, he was one of the smallest players in baseball at 5'5" but he was named the 1958 American League Rookie of the Year. He was traded to the Baltimore Orioles in 1959 and played with them until the 1960 Expansion Draft when he was selected by the Los Angeles Angels. His best season was 1963 when he made the AL All Star team, led the league in singles with 161 and finished third in the batting race with a .305 average.

I finally finished the Angels All Star card after getting Ken McBride and Bill Moran to sign it.

Bobby Locke
pitched with the Indians, Cardinals, Phillies, Reds and Angels from 1959 to 1968
