Kris Benson to Divorce His "Baseball Wife"

Years ago, while Kris Benson was a pitcher for the New York Mets, Anna Benson famously told Howard Stern that if her husband ever cheated on her, she would "do everybody on his whole team."
Well...I hope she still has the names and numbers from everyone on that roster.

According to reports, the former hurler served his then-wife with divorce papers in March after she said she discovered evidence he was having an affair.

“I’m very sad about this...Kris was my whole life. And he left me for someone else and he just abandoned us," Anna Benson said.  “I introduced (my friend) to Kris because she’s going through a divorce and I wanted to help her by getting someone trustworthy, who I thought would be Kris, to manage her money.”

Now retired from baseball, Kris works for New York-based Monarch Wealth & Business Management.  Anna, as you might remember, was one of the baseball wives featured on the VH1 show, aptly titled, "Baseball Wives".

The couple of thirteen years is separated and Anna is claiming that Kris is forcing her to sell the family’s 8000 square foot Georgia home.  She also says that she asked her husband to buy the family a home $300,000 to $400,000 range...reportedly less than half of their former home's asking price.

The former number one draft pick had other ideas.

“Kris said that we should move into a $56,000 house that he bought as a flip in the ghetto.  His attorneys have told my attorneys that I can just move in with my mother,” Anna added. “But this is not about me. I’ll sleep on the floor in the dirt...I don’t care. This is about my children having a roof over their heads. I have no income. I have no way to earn a living. What the hell does he expect?"

Something tells me this thing is going to be a messy one.

For old time's sake, feel free to check out The Hall's interviews with both Anna and Kris from seemingly happier times.
