Although he enjoyed a few good seasons with the Pirates, Benson is probably best known for the outlandish antics of his wife, Anna. Kris, the ACC Male Athlete of the Year in 1996 at Clemson, accumulated a 70-75 major league record with a 4.42 ERA in nine seasons with the Pirates, Mets, Orioles, Rangers and Diamondbacks.
