Prep catcher Max Stassi is a true baseball rat, the type of player and person that wakes up every day to play baseball. All of his success stems from his hard work and passion for the game, and that effort makes him a joy to watch. His defensive prowess is his best asset, having great catch-and-throw skills, with a rocket for an arm and very good footwork behind the plate. His take-charge, leadership skills makes him a natural at handling a pitching staff. At the plate he employs a direct, quick stroke to spray line drives to all parts of the fields. Despite his smallish, sub-6' stature, he has pretty good pop, and has enough bat speed and overall power potential to hit his fair share of dingers. Overall he's a very good athlete, with good speed for a catcher that runs the bases well. Given his work ethic, his defensive skills and his bat, he is very solid player across the board in a very good year for prep catchers. Last summer, Stassi participated at nearly every major showcase and tournament event, including the Perfect Game National, the Tournament of Stars and Team USA, as well as the Aflac All-American and Under Armour games. He has committed to play at UCLA.
