 Biographical Information
A prototypical good field, no-hit player, Benjamin managed 11 years of major league service, spent mostly with the San Francisco Giants and the Pittsburgh Pirates. His only notable offensive category was in hitting 7 triples for the Pirates in the 1999 season when he was the starting shortstop for most of the year.
However, Mike holds the record for most hits in 3 consecutive games amassing 14 hits in 18 at bats in June 1995.
After his playing career was over, he coached his son Mike Jr to the Little League World Series. He became an assistant coach at Arizona State University in 2010. His son is a freshman on the ASU team in 2011.
