A 5-foot-10, 160-pound 2021 right hand hitting catcher/OF who ran a 7.00 60. He had an 84 mph exit velocity. At the plate, simple and repeatable, pre pitch rhythm in hands, minimal load, in line stride, slightly longer swing from left side with pull approach, works gap to gap from right side, slight lift in bat path during finish.  Behind the plate, he is athletic and fluid. Delivers from a high 3/4 arm slot with accuracy to the bag. Pop-times were 2.07-2.10 with a 75 mph arm. In the outfield he used his speed to run down several balls in the gaps. Gets behind the ball on his throws and delivers an accurate ball to the bag.

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.
