Before we start, a very important update to an earlier post. Longtime readers of the annotated box score remember when I featured a pistachio commercial that aired during last year’s World Series, and the press release written in coordination with it — specifically, that Big Pistachio was excited to make a “statement-making entrance into the salty snack category.” Their latest statement comes with an exclamation point:

This season, the folks at Paramount have put their “Wonderful Pistachios” in 11 ballparks, including Petco (Padres), Fenway (Red Sox), Citi (Mets), Citizens Bank (Phillies), Great American (Reds) and Dodger Stadium.

“A baseball fan is used to having a nut in his or her hand,” said Dominic Engels, vice president of global marketing for Paramount. “We’re presenting them with the pistachio, which they might not have thought of before.”

Pistachio news, very important. Follow Dominic Engels on Twitter. He claims he eats pistachios with at least two meals a day.
