In 1956, Albie Pearson won the Texas League (AA) batting title at .371 (27 points above the #2 man). He also recorded 21 OF assists that year, 28 the next year -- perhaps a case of everyone trying to take the extra base on him?

Two of them played for the expansion Angels in 1961: OF Albie Pearson and SS Fritz Brickell.

Brickell was just a scrub, but Pearson was a bit of a star: He was the 1958 AL Rookie of the Year with Washington (it was a very weak rookie crop); and from 1961-63, Pearson averaged 100 Runs (leading the AL in '62), a .392 OBP (ranking 4th in '61 and 2nd in '63). Pearson posted a .370 OBP in '65 (the AL OBP was .317), but he was out of the game a year later due to chronic back problems.

"Harry Chappas got attention because he was listed as 5'3" (he was really 5'6")...."

Of course, that doesn't explain why he's listed at 5'7" on his B-R player page.
