Anthony S. Ferrella III (born February 17, 1998) is the Host of the Standard Procedure Podcast. In addition, he has 9 partnerships, including four brand deals. Previously, ANT served in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization of Major League Baseball (MLB) for four seasons.
ANT grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and attended Chartiers Valley School District. He began playing baseball at the age of two years and continued to play through high school. With a deep interest in the game, and a career cut short due to an arm injury, he was pursued by the Pittsburgh Pirates toward the end of 2015 and things fell into place a few months later.
ANT attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He helped revitalize a media department launching 'The Anthony Ferrella Show' which covered SEC Football with Paul Finebaum, Laura Rutledge, and many others. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree on May 8, 2020.
After graduating from Duquesne University, ANT continued to work in the Pirates organization for a few months until the two decided to mutually part ways. From there, he was offered an exclusive, multi-year deal to Host a brand new podcast called 'Standard Procedure' which helps young people grow in their relationships and careers. Not too long after the podcast launched, with the partnerships and brand deals continuing to grow, ANT moved to Miami, FL in March of 2022. A few months later, the first ever merch drop of ANT in a WB Collection occured on September 13, 2022.
