Get to Know a Baseball Wife: Introducing Anna Benson

Page 2 of 2


Name: Anna Benson

Reputation: Benson's the wild child -- a gun-giddy, potty-mouthed, fur-loving former FHM model with the ta-tas to prove it. She calls it like she sees it and promises to change for no one.

Baseball Husband: Since 1999, Anna's played baseball wife to now-retired pitcher Kris Benson, who played for the D-backs, Mets, Pirates, Rangers, and Orioles.

Quotable Quips: "It's really sexy when women shoot guns."
