Benny Distefano

Benny Distefano played in five major league seasons, mostly with the Pittsburgh Pirates, primarily as a first baseman and also seeing some action in the outfield. Never able to win a regular role in the majors, he played nine seasons in AAA. He was one of the few players to hit a triple in their first MLB at-bat. He hit clean-up in the first AAA All-Star Game. In the majors, he was the last left-handed catcher. He also spent time in Nippon Pro Baseball, the Venezuelan League (winning two triples titles) and the Dominican League. After his playing career ended, he was a coach.
