Schwindenhammer

One of the players drafted by the Red Sox is Seth Schwindenhammer. If he makes it to the team his name will be the longest ever (beating out Saltalamacchia by a letter - he plays for the Rangers). This presents a challenge to the people who sew names on the backs of uniforms.

While I was working for Honeywell Bull in Billerica, Mass., in the eighties they issued us ID cards with mag strips. The size of the card was determined by the longest name of anyone working there at the time:
RAMASWAMY
BALASUBRAMANIAN
We all called him "Bala".
