Ben Foster is 6'0", 165 lb. middle infielder from Danville, Virginia. In the infield he showed good arm strength with 79 mph velocity on his throws. Foster fields the ball out in front well with solid defensive actions. He shows good footwork on ground balls and around the bag on the turn. Ben is a right handed hitter with a narrow base and no load approach. He shows some raw bat speed and hand strength. Ben has some length in his swing, but showed some power on pitches on the middle half in. He hit the ball hard in batting practice, but had some problems with pitches on the outside half against live pitching. He does have a quick bat and lots of potential. Ben is an excellent student.

Foster is a second baseman that showed playable and projectable actions. He can swing the wood well for a 5 foot 9 and 145 pound middle infielder. We liked what we saw in the field with his glove, making ground balls look easy. His actions in the infield were good but his actions at the plate were even better. He has quick hands and that appeared to be a key to his swing. As he develops strength he could end up hitting with some power. Ben is an excellent student.
