professionally? I doubt it.
I was judging in Virginia Beach in 2009 when Ben came on the scene at 18. that doesn't leave much time for a pro or even collegiate career.
Not to take anything away from him, because he's an amazing athlete, but if Ben was a baseball prospect of high caliber, don't you think he'd be on a team now? even at the league minimums, he'd be putting CF winnings and endorsements to shame if he was in MLB
