Personal

At the plate, Leo is good at consistently putting the ball in play and at hitting in various situations.  He also has some power, with exit velocities ranging as high as the mid-90s.

Defensively, he can play a variety of positions, making him an excellent utility player, and has above-average speed. He has experience at first base, shortstop, third base and right field, but can play any of the outfield positions and also pitch.  He played at six different positions during a single game in 2021.  The velocity on his throws across the diamond ranges from the low-80s to mid-80s (mph).  As a pitcher, he features a four-seam fastball, a curve, slider and change-up.

Leo is an positive, energetic, supportive teammate who keeps the dugout loose.  He is the type that will always put in the extra work necessary to keep improving.  When he’s not in-season, he continually works out and trains.

Testimonials

Trevor Rooper

Former Stockholm Monarchs Coach and BBJO Member

I have known Leo since he was 13 years old and can only say good things about him as a player and person. Leo brings an energy and zeal for the game that is unmatched. Leo respects the game, he respects his coaches and he respects himself. Leo can play any position in the field. He has caught, pitched, played infield and outfield for me in the past. A super utility player that can hit with power. He is only becoming better and better as he gains more experience. Leo would be a great asset for any club in the world. I am happy to back Leo Quaglia.
