Jeff Banister

Jeffery Todd Banister was born January 15, 1965 in Weatherford, Oklahoma. He is a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates Major League Baseball organization.

Baseball career

Banister had but one at bat in his Major League Baseball career, which resulted in a base hit. Subsequently, his career concluded with a perfect 1.000 career batting average.

Banister was called up from the minor leagues on July 23, 1991, because catcher Don Slaught was injured and manager Jim Leyland had him pinch hit in the eighth inning of that day's game against the Atlanta Braves in Three Rivers Stadium. Using Cecil Espy's bat, Banister hit a ball from Dan Petry and just beat shortstop Jeff Blauser's throw to first base.

Banister was sent back to the minors but eventually returned as a coach and field coordinator.
