We are fortunate to have Andy Benes as the keynote speaker for our fourth annual Sportsmen's Banquet.

Many of us in the St. Louis area remember Andy as the 6’ 6’’ award winning pitcher who served 2 stints as a Cardinal and ended his 14 year baseball career here in 2002.  Among his many baseball accomplishments which created these memories are:

  • College baseball All American and Pitcher of the Year in 1988
  • Olympic Gold Medalist in 1988
  • First overall draft pick in 1988 amateur draft by the San Diego Padres
  • 155 Major League wins and 2,000 career strike outs
  • Led NL in strike outs and strike outs per 9 innings pitched in 1994
  • 1993 All Star

While his professional baseball career may have ended in 2002, Andy’s All-Star commitment to the community and Christian values continues. In addition to sharing his testimony with youth groups, Andy is the host of the Cardinals Kids Show and is the Cardinal’s spokesperson for community affairs and anti-drug program.

Andy is actively involved with Westminster Christian Academy. He is assistant baseball coach producing State Championship teams three years running (2011, 2012 & 2013). He is also active with fundraising for Westminster, JoyFM, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and St. Louis University.  From time to time you may hear Andy on the radio as a co-host on JoyFm, KFNS or KMOX.

Andy and his wife Jennifer have 6 children ranging from 24 to 3 years old. We thank them for giving him up to us for one night on February 8, 2014.
