Interviewed By Mike Duffy
Mike Duffy: I was wondering when you go from high school, to the minor leagues, what was the biggest challenge when you reach each stage?
Will Benson: The biggest challenge was handling failure. The challenge is more prevalent to my first year in pro ball and has gotten better since. In highschool, you’ve had a bad game or two and tell yourself today you are going 2 for 3 and do it. In pro-ball, it doesn’t work that way. You just have to develop patience and routines that will get you back on track.
