Today in Distinctly Mature B-Ref Player Name Searches

Yesterday in these electronic pages, Dayn Perry, that foe of the human race, submitted to the readership notable returns from decidedly juvenile Baseball-Reference player-name searches.

With a view towards accounting for the full width and breadth and maybe even depth of that same readership, the present author submits here a complement to Perry’s post from yesterday — namely, of results from B-Ref player-name searches featuring words and phrases most relevant to the experience of this nation’s seniors.
