Alfred Allbon was born in Springhill, Nova Scotia, on November 8, 1905. He made his senior baseball debut only 16 years later on September 22, 1922. Allbon was both a centerfielder and pitcher for the Springhill Fencebusters, but is best known for his mound exploits.

In 1922, Allbon was labelled “a pitching whiz kid who could strike out batters twice his age.” His career highlights include pitching in three of the longest playoff games ever played in Nova Scotia. In 1922, he pitched 14 innings and in 1925, he pitched games of 13 and 15 innings. Allbon led the Fencebusters to four provincial championships (1925, 1927, 1928, 1933) and two Maritime championships (1927, 1928).
