Madeira HS grad with Brown County ties performing well in the big leagues –

By Wade Linville –

Since making his major league debut on Aug. 2, Andrew Benintendi has already proven that he belongs in the big leagues.
It didn’t take long for the 22-year-old Boston Red Sox rookie outfielder to hammer out his first major league hit, going two-for-three at the plate in his first major league start.
Benintendi went on to crank out nine hits in his first 20 at bats., while driving home four runs and quickly making fans of the Fenway faithful.  The left-handed swinging outfielder almost had his first major league homer on Sunday Night Baseball, only to see the call reversed by an umpire’s review.
The Madeira High School graduate has close ties in Brown County.  His mother Jill (Brookbank) Benintendi was a basketball standout and 1,000 point scorer when attending Ripley High School in the 1980s. His father Chris Benintendi was a multi-sport athlete and is a graduate of Georgetown High School, where his aunt and 1984 graduate Kelly Benintendi, holds the all-time scoring record in basketball and still ranks 12th in Ohio for career points over 30 years after graduating from Georgetown.
While his parents reside in the Cincinnati area, many of Andrew Benintendi’s aunts, uncles, and other family members remain as residents of Brown County.
Not only has genetics obviously played a role in Benintendi’s success in the majors, but so have years of hard work that began when he was just a toddler.
For the young athletes of Brown County, Andrew Benintendi’s success in baseball serves as inspiration.
Benintendi currently holds Madeira High School’s career and single season records for home runs, hits, at-bats, runs, and doubles; while also holding the school’s single season records for runs batted in and batting average.
He was drafted in the 31st round of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Cincinnati Reds, but chose to attend the University of Arkansas, where he played his way into being a Top 10 prospect and was drafted number seven overall by the Red Sox in the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft.
