Ben Weber

Born: Nov. 17, 1969 in Port Neches, Texas

     Southeast Texas native and professional baseball player Ben Weber learned to play baseball at an early age.  After graduating from Port Neches-Groves High School, Weber went on to the University of Houston. He later spent several years pitching in the minor leagues and overseas before joining the major leagues, first with the San Francisco Giants and then with the Anaheim Angels.


     Weber realized the ultimate baseball player's dream when his team the Anaheim Angels won the World Series against the San Francisco Giants in 2002. Weber's pitching helped end a 41-year, uninterrupted stretch of non-championship baseball for the Angels.


     He continued to pitch with the Anaheim Ball Club until 2003 and briefly played with the Cincinnati Reds before retiring in 2005.
