Ben Heller played for Wisconsin All-Stars his sophomore and junior years of high school. The right-handed pitcher, at 6'3", 205 pounds, threw 85-86 mph at the time. After graduating from Whitewater High School in 2009, he went on to play at Olivet Nazarene University (NAIA). Working with ONU head coach Todd Reid, Ben increased his strength and velocity, throwing in the low 90s when drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 22nd round in 2013. With his fastball reaching 95-97 mph, he was traded to the New York Yankees on July 31, 2016. Ben played for the Yankees AAA team, the Columbus Clippers, before receiving a call up to the Yankees bullpen. The Wisconsin All-Stars coaching staff couldn't be more proud of Ben for his incredible dedication and hard work at every level along the way.
