Mt. Zion vs Effingham - 3/30/24

By: Diego Solares
Central Region Media Director, Scouting

Camden Raddatz, INF, Effingham, 2024
Kaskaskia JC signee. Muscle-bound 6-foot, 185-pound frame with noticeable; clear physicality throughout his stature. Has long been an integral part of an Effingham program that made it to the 3A state finals last spring. Started at shortstop and hit third for the Hearts in this look. Walks up to the plate with a presence to him, expects to produce in each at-bat. Clear bat strength, generates bat speed out of a quick tip load, strides short. Picked up a pair of hits in the Effingham win, both of them to the opposite field - a hard RBI single early on followed by a backside double in his last at-bat. Looked the part of a real impact right-handed bat. Chipped in three more hits, all singles, in the second game of this doubleheader. Showed well on the infield as well. Sure-handed actions, controlled on the move to both sides. Made an impressive play in-game to his backhand, snagging a hard hit ground ball, spinning around, and throwing out a would-be runner at first base. Arm played with easy strength across in I/O. Clearly the leader of this year’s Effingham club, has a vocal presence to him on the infield that stands out. A prospect to follow now and into his college career as he heads to Kaskaskia.
