Card of the Day: 3/10/16

2001 Fleer Tradition #349 Andy Benes

     Did You Know?

On September 6, 2002, Andy (pitching for the Cardinals) faced off against his brother, Cubs pitcher Alan Benes, in what was only the seventh time a pair of brothers pitched against each other in a Major League game. Andy got the better of Alan by pitching a complete game. Alan was removed from the game in the third inning. The Cardinals won 11-2.

  1. I am a big fan of Benes. His arrival in 1996 helped start the Cardinals resurgence. I have also spoken to him at Cardinals Carvans. Very knowledgeable about coaching kids.
