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.

Moving from shortstop to right field is no easy task. Judging fly balls, reacting and then running them down were totally new challenges for Justin.

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.
