Benji Johnson


Position:- Catcher

Benji's love, passion, and mission is catching. It is his goal to add his personality to the position that he played for almost 20 years. It started for Benji at 9 years old when he first put the gear on and got behind the plate. He never left the position from that point forward and he hopes you have fallen in love with the position as well. It takes a special kind of person to put on the gear and get behind the plate.

Benji played the game with a passion that he wants to share with young catchers who wish to play at the next level whether that be middle school, high school, college or professionally. The passion he has for the game of baseball and specifically the catching position will overflow into you.

Benji played 3 years at the University of North Carolina where he was fortunate to have been a part of two national runners up teams during his tenure at UNC. He played in the College World Series in 2006 and 2007 and says one of his sweetest memories from the world series was in 2006 when he caught a throw from his pitcher who had just fielded a squeeze bunt and he threw his body infront of home plate to stop the runner from scoring. It is this kind of play that took Benji to the next level when he was drafted by his favorite childhood team, the Atlanta Braves.

There are three key traits that Benji believes are important to have in order to be successful at the catching position. Integrity, selflessness, and humility. ​
