I was fortunate enough to meet Ben while on an airplane flight, and he was gracious enough to allow me to interview him for the book.
Ben has been part of several World Series teams, losing in 2008 with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and then winning in 2015 with the Kansas City Royals, and again as the World Series MVP in 2016 with the Chicago Cubs.
Ben strikes me as a person who truly is an MVP on and off the field. He and three friends give back to young players through their podcast The Show and Go. Ben is also very involved with his church and just helps people wherever he goes. In fact that is what first called my attention to him, was how helped out a woman on our flight.
