Benjamin Thomas Zobrist (; born May 26, 1981), nicknamed Zorilla, is an American professional baseball second baseman and outfielder who is a free agent.
He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays/Rays, his first MLB club and where he spent the majority of his career, as well as for the Oakland Athletics, Kansas City Royals and Chicago Cubs.
Zobrist has played in three World Series, winning the last two becoming a two-time World Series champion in consecutive seasons of 2015 with the Royals and 2016 with the Cubs.
Zobrist was the 2016 World Series Most Valuable Player.
He is one of seven players in MLB history to have won back-to back World Series championships on different teams, the other six being Jake Peavy, Jack Morris, Bill Skowron, Clem Labine, Don Gullett, and Ryan Theriot.
A versatile defender and a switch-hitter with a high walk rate, he has played roughly half his innings at second base, and has also spent significant time at shortstop and various outfield positions.
Thus, he has often been referred to as a "super utility player".
