Stanley Julián Antonio Javier [hah-ve-ERR] (born January 9, 1964 in San Francisco de Macorís, Dominican Republic) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder and switch-hitter who played with the New York Yankees (1984), Oakland Athletics (1986-90, 1994-95), Los Angeles Dodgers (1990-92), Philadelphia Phillies (1992), California Angels (1993), San Francisco Giants (1996-99), Houston Astros (1999) and Seattle Mariners (2000-01). His father, Julián Javier, was a second baseman for the Cardinals and named his son for teammate and close friend Stan Musial.

His production was good from both sides of the plate, and he had a strong arm with the ability to play all three outfield positions. He is also one of only three players to bat against (current Red Sox manager) Terry Francona, and the only one who struck out (on three pitches).

In his 17-year career, Javier batted .269 with 57 home runs, 503 RBI, 781 runs scored and 246 stolen bases in 1763 games and collected a World Series ring with the A's in 1989. His career highlights included finishing tenth in the AL in stolen bases in 1994, with 24, and seventh in the AL in steals in 1995, with 36.

Javier hit the first Interleague home run in Major League history against the Texas Rangers while playing for the San Francisco Giants.

In the Dominican Winter Baseball league, Stan won two batting titles back to back years and was named the all-time center fielder for the Aguilas Cibaenas, teaming up with his father Julian Javier, who was named the all time second baseman for the same team.

He was named the general manager of the Dominican Baseball team in the first World Baseball Classic in 2006 and named again the general manager for the 2009 series.
