Warren Bannerman

Until Hal Richman found Warren Bannerman, it would have been impossible for Strat-O-Matic to create an advanced game. Warren was an extraordinary programmer, and he computerized Hal’s formulas and algorithms where Strat-O-Matic was able to create, in essence, three cards for every player- his basic card, vs left-hander, and vs right-hander cards. Warren continued to program and advise Strat-O-Matic over the next 30 years. Warren passed away in an unfortunate automobile accident in 2002 but his legacy at Strat-O-Matic lives on. To this day, the Bannerman program is used to create the baseball cards each year.
