Born in Taylor, Texas and a graduate of Texas A&M University with high honors, Ken Stauffer began his long career in baseball as a teacher and coach in Brenham, Texas serving as the Junior High Coordinator of Athletics and Assistant Varsity Baseball Coach.

Ken's interest in scouting peaked in 1979 after one of his players was selected in the First Round of the Major League Draft by the Chicago White Sox. He became a part-time scout for the White Sox from 1980-81. In the fall of 1983, Ken was hired as a full-time scout for the Sox organization in the Mid-west. Twelve years later, Ken was honored for his long and prestigious career with the Sox when he received the Charles W. Lubin Award in 1995. The annual honor recognizes a Chicago White Sox organization Scouting and Player Development staff member who, among other things, demonstrates superior judgment, player communication skills, motivational techniques, teaching skills, travels the "extra mile" in pursuit of excellence and professionally represents the organization.

In 2004 Ken was recognized by the Cleveland Indians for his leadership, professionalism, and work ethic. During Ken's 29-year career with various baseball teams, his positions have run the gamut from Area Scout to Mid-West Supervisor. He scouted with the Oakland A's during the "Earthquake" Series
