Girsch, 34, has been a member of the Cardinals organization since 2006, most recently holding the title of Director of Baseball Development. Girsch, a native of Chicago, IL, holds degrees from both the University of Notre Dame and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business where he earned his MBA.
Girsch and Mejdal have both served important roles in the team's analytical department where they have assisted in player evaluation and scouting and the creation and development of the team's RedBird Dog 2.0 professional and amateur scouting system that coordinates player video with data and scouting reports.
Note: We earlier ran a two-part interview with Mejdal in which he discussed his background and his job with the Cardinals. Part one is free, while part two is exclusively for The Cardinal Nation subscribers.
