Ben paulsen 2015 season highlights
Born in Plymouth, Wisconsin, but raised in Alabama and Georgia, Paulsen attended Kell High School in Marietta, Georgia. Paulsen's father, Riginos, played college baseball and Paulsen attended Clemson University alongside current teammate Kyle Parker. Paulsen's performance and play improved dramatically during his time at Clemson. 6'3 and weighing only 180 lbs. during his freshman season, Paulsen batted .258 and hit five home runs. However, by the time he was a junior and in his final season, a bigger and stronger Paulsen hit .368 with 11 home runs.
Paulsen was drafted by the Colorado Rockies as a first baseman in the third round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft. Paulsen was an Arizona Fall League Rising Star in 2011.
In 2014, while playing for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League (PCL), Paulsen was named to the PCL team for the Triple-A All-Star Game. The Rockies promoted Paulsen to the majors for the first time on July 21, 2014, and he made his debut that day.
