In actuality, Stanky is a name that goes way back in Dodger history and the circa 1947 Wheaties advertising above memorializes the man as a Dodger master of getting on base. I guess you can say he was Moneyball before Moneyball was Moneyball.
"The Brooklyn Dodger diminutive infielder is a master of fouling good pitches, taking bad pitches... and waiting for a pass to first.Not only that, he loves his Wheaties.
Stanky earned more passes than any National Leaguer during 1946. In 1945 he set a league record with 148 bases on balls... and led in runs scored with 128 tallies."
