Ippolito has a lanky-athletic frame at 5-foot-11 155-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 6.97-seconds and recorded an exit velocity of 82 MPH. Offensively, Ippolito starts in a wide stance with hands just above back shoulder and bat parallel to the ground. Bat wraps around head. As pitch comes in, Ippolito uses a leg lift and stride to start swing, hands load down and back. Creates extension in hands and arms through his swing - power will only continue to develop as adds muscle to frame. Defensively, took reps at SS. Throws topped at 85 MPH across the diamond, which was the second best of the infield velocities of the event. Fields ball out in front of body and gathers at the chest. Quick, fluid exchange and long, loose arm action. Throws from a high-3/4 slot with carry.
