[edit] Biographical Information

Mike Benjamin was signed as a 3rd round pick in the 1987 amateur draft by the San Francisco Giants and scout Gene Thompson.

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. His son is a freshman played for ASU from 2011-2013.

Benjamin became an assistant coach at Arizona State University in 2010-2014. He then moved back to the pro ranks as manager of the AZL Diamondbacks in 2015 and Kane County Cougars in 2016.
