Player Profile: Bob Beall

I have one card of Bob Beall, from 1979 Topps.

Playing career: First baseman Bob Beall played for the Braves and Pirates from 1975 to 1980. In 148 games he hit .231 with 1 HR and 18 RBI.

Where he is now: He retired after a long career at Nike in 2009, culminating as Director of Planning for Jordan Apparel. He is now a board member for the Hillsboro Schools Foundation in Oregon.

My memories: He is from before my time. Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Bob Beal, ahead of Bob Beale, former CEO of Comtrol. The first entry when you type Bob Beall is not the ballplayer but the CEO of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Coming up next: The next profile will be T.J. Beam.
