Justin Upton's Ultimate Move: From SS to OF

October 13, 2010

Speed, power, agility and strength. Yep, Justin Upton has 'em all. One result? The hyper-athletic Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder was able to take his impressive game from the infield to the outfield without a hitch.

Check out the above video, the latest installment in the Ultimate Moves series, to see how Justin made the move and achieved All-Star status at his new position.
