Ben Urista is a 2007 catcher/outfielder from Redlands East Valley HS in Redlands, CA, with a 5'10", 165 lb. frame. Urista worked out from the outfield as well as behind the plate. From the outfield he has solid arm strength with good actions, but he needs to stay behind the ball consistently on his throws. Behind the plate Urista has a quick arm with very good accuracy, and has good receiving skills. He also has good footwork and blocks balls well to either side centering the ball well on his chest. Offensively he is a switch hitter with solid bat speed and a line drive swing plane. Urista uses a short to no stride approach and is short to the ball. He makes adjustments with his hands well and hits the ball where it is pitched. Urista has position flexibility and needs to be followed for the class of 2007. He is also a very good student.
