PBR Colorado strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. The Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state. While other organizations take a national approach, our goal is to become the authoritative voice on the ground level of each state.

Scouting Report

1-27-19
 
Uncommitted. 5-foot-10, 160 pounds. Bats and throws right. Rapoza is a contact, gap to gap hitter. Has an athletic balanced stance hands load slightly back with good separation and rhythm. Hands are quick and short to the ball with a slightly uphill swing. Because of quick hands has the ability to let the ball get deep into the hitting zone. Head is still and stays on the baseball. Had a very good live round barreling every pitch. We liked his extension through the hitting zone. Exit velocity off the tee was 84 mph, but played faster in the live round. Behind the plate Rapoza has good lateral mobility and is efficient in blocking balls. On throw downs Rapoza shows the ability to stay in the catching position, then displays quick feet in throw-down that is accurate to 2B. Pop-times had a quick release off a coach were 1.87 to 1.95 with arm velo of 73 mph. Rapoza shows natural abiltity at the position, and has a chance to start for ThunderRidge this spring.
