Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Albert Parsells
Elected February 26, 1999

A shining light in a gray post-war era, Albert "Al" Parsells accomplished so much and did so against the odds. One of the arena's finest stars, he was nine-goals both in the arena and on the grass, all the greater achievement having lost an eye as a child.

A textbook sportsman, Al shared his talent with all who sought him. He coached aspiring players and was always ready with helpful advice. He managed the famed Meadow Brook and Squadron-A polo clubs, and were it not for his untimely death at the age of 36, his exploits would be greater still.

In his short career, Al represented the East indoors and out, won two arena Senior Championships, a National Arena Chairman's Cup and a Monty Waterbury title.
