Bennie Bengough


A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: When regular catcher Bill Dickey takes the day off he can rest easy knowing Benny is on the job. A good handler of pitchers that knows the right pitch to call, Benny is also a fan favorite due to his great sense of humor. At 5 feet and 7 inches, 168 pounds, he is more known for his fielding than his long ball hitting. He may still be looking for his first homer after playing ten years in the big leagues but Benny can still sting the ball. His lifetime average is a respectable .255 and his fielding average is .988.
