Baseball, apple pie, and Stan

Ben sends along these two baseball job ads that mention experience with Stan as a preferred qualification:

St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Development Analyst

Tampa Bay Rays Baseball Research and Development Analyst


  1. How did apple pie get in there? lol

    • Wayne says:

      I’m probably taking the bait here, but for the non-Americans who may read this, there’s a patriotic phrase that mentions “baseball and apple pie” (sometimes adding “motherhood”) that became an iconic car advertisement lyric in the 1970’s: “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet”.

  2. Garnett says:

    I notice they capitalize “Stan”, for which I have gotten serious grief.

  3. Phil says:

    Stan is not a good name, but the thing that really gets me is that you guys knew that and went with it anyway! And that’s fine. “The great language with a lousy name”, well why not, it’s not like the name is the most important thing in the world.
