The estranged wife of a former major league pitcher who also was featured on the VH-1 show “Baseball Wives” has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and weapons charges.

Cobb County District Attorney’s spokeswoman Kim Isaza said Tuesday that 37-year-old Anna Benson pleaded guilty to being armed with a gun when she went to Kris Benson’s suburban Atlanta home July 7 and demanded $30,000 from him.

Isaza says Anna Benson was wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying a metal baton at the time.

Kris Benson pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates, the New York Mets, the Baltimore Orioles, the Texas Rangers, and the Arizona Diamondbacks between 1999 and 2010.

A judge ordered Anna Benson to serve 15 years of probation and complete inpatient psychiatric treatment and follow-up care.
