Benji Gil made his Major League Baseball debut with the Texas Rangers on April 5, 1993. Gil was born in Tijuana, Mexico and finished his MLB career with a .237 batting average, including 32 home runs, and 71 RBI. His tenure includes work as a utility player for the Rangers in 1993 and from 1995-97 starting at shortstop, but also including both second base, third base, first base, and outfield. Gil went on to join the Anaheim Angels from 2000-03, highlighted by a World Series ring in 2002 with the ball club.
Gil has also signed contracts with the Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, and Seattle Mariners although he didn’t spend time at the MLB level with any of the clubs. He was a member of the Anaheim Angels team that won the 2002 World Series by defeating the San Francisco Giants.
Benji will have an obvious impact with the Spirits any time he’s available to play and the team is excited to have him. Gil and his wife Carly reside in Keller, TX and have two children, Mateo and Gehrig.
