June 2nd, 2011
Griffin Benedict (SPX '05), a former stand out baseball player at St. Pius X and Georgia Southern is now a bullpen catcher for the San Diego Padres. After playing two years in the Padres minor league system, Benedict accepted his current role this spring.
Benedict had the chance to come home this week (May 30 - June 1) when the Padres visited Turner Field to play the Atlanta Braves. He is interested in a coaching as a career and is learning all he can from the Padres coaches.
