Pictured In action IB Monte Pearson, who in 1027 played baseball In a league organized by C. P. Hopson, of this city. « In those days young Monto had plenty of stuff on the ball. Of course he lacked tho finish and experience now manifest In his pitching, but he showed more than casual potentialities at that time. Now, on the eve of the world series, hundreds of ball fans here will bo Interested, Intensely so, If Monte goes on the mound for tho Yankees to touch off his smokers, break his sharp curves and exercise his cunning change of pace at tho expense of the New York Giants. Presence of Pearson In the Yankee camp gives this city more than a casual interest In the outcome of the final games. Pear-, son has made a great name for himself In the big time and was one of tho all-star players designated as suoh this year by popular votes of fans throughout tho nation. From Bakersf leld Pearson went to Fresno, thence to Oakland and finally, after seasoning in a lesser league, to Cleveland where he was with the Indians in 1935. When Cleveland had a chance to swap him for Johnny Allen, tho club did so and has regretted it ever since. Now the Bakersf leld boy, after a fine initial record with the Yankees, awaits with that squad, the opening of the 1936 world series and Its dramatic climax in New York.
