Ben Zobrist is one of the best utility men in all of baseball, winning World Series rings with the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago Cubs. Skilled at playing all positions around the diamond, Zobrist has had a long lasting, impressive career that started when the Houston Astros selected him as a shortstop in the 6th round of the 2004 MLB draft. Zobrist was then traded to the Tampa Bay Rays where he would spend nine seasons and make a name for himself in the big leagues.
Zobrist began his career exclusively playing shortstop in Tampa Bay, but when coaches saw his ability around the field, Zobrist started playing more outfield and other positions around the infield. In the 2009 season, Zobrist started at second base for the Rays and used his hitting power to earn a trip to the 2009 MLB All-Star game in St. Louis. In 2013, Zobrist was nominated to his second career All-Star game and continued his excellent hitting. In 2015, Zobrist was traded to the Kansa City Royals where he would go on to win the World Series title, batting .303 with 2 home runs and 6 RBIs in the postseason. The next year, Zobrist signed with the Chicago Cubs, reuniting with his former coach in Tampa Bay, Joe Maddon. That year, the Cubs would post a stellar record and advanced through the playoffs all the way to the World Series. In a 7-game series against the Cleveland Indians, the Cubs secured their first MLB championship in 108 years. Zobrist’s late-game heroics in extra innings of game 7 were enough to win him the World Series MVP.
With a long history of great defensive play and superb offensive production, Ben Zobrist has contributed to every team he played for in the big leagues. Extremely versatile and durable, Ben Zobrist is loved by fans of the Rays, Cubs, and most fans of the game. Celebrate Ben Zobrist’s great career with our authentic sports memorabilia collectibles.
