Residence:Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
Balsz is wrapping up his senior season at Santa Margarita High School. The 18-year-old has played a few positions during his high school career, but behind the plate is where he’d like to take his game to the next level: He’s one of the top catching prospects in California.
“I try to model my game after J.T. Realmuto,” Balsz said. “I love the way he has changed the game defensively. His dominance and consistency behind the plate is something I’d like to emulate.”
