Allen J. Anderson


After graduating from Arvin High, I attended Bakersfield College for a year. I then got a job with a fertilizer company where I worked for two years. At the age of 21 I married and I am still married to Jana Lyttle Anderson. We have two children, Allen Chase and Wendy Jo. I now have three grandchildren; Ryan Chase Anderson 15, Macee Stowers 6 and Sydnee Stowers 4. They are my pride and joy.

I worked for Arden Dairy for 18 years as a delivery driver and then as a salesman. Twenty-five years ago I bought my own business, County Fair Meat. I’m at work four days a week at 7:30 AM and some Saturdays.

Baseball became my hobby. I coached Jr. League baseball in my twenties and had four champion 12-year old teams. On one 12-year old team I coached Theo Bell who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bill Barker, who became my dentist, John Crosby of Crosby Insurance, Todd Star, sales manager for Budweiser and race car driver Larry Briscoe. What great athletes and adults those kids became. Then there was Cub Scout baseball for a couple of years with me trying to coach my son – not a good idea. Softball was the highlight of my life. What memories I have of all the softball tournaments. I started pitching “A” League fast pitch softball when I was 24 and retired from softball at 40. I moved up to open league fast pitch and pitched with New Zealanders and Canadians. I went to three World Softball Tournaments. I have several Most Valuable Player trophies.

 Today I try to splay some golf, work some, go to my grandson’s baseball games and enjoy my 5th wheel at Pismo Coast Village.
