Ben is an "06" catcher from PA. He's not a big guy, but he is strong and lean with plenty of room and time to gain more strength yet. Defensively he shows quick feet, nice hands, and a good accurate arm. At the plate he shows quick hands with an opposite field type approach. He has a nice balanced set up and maintains that balance throughout the swing. He flashes power potential. Ben is a good student with a bright baseball future.
