RAPSODO RAPSCORE

The New Standard in Player Evaluation

Standardized test for baseball & softball player development and evaluation

"The Rapsodo National Player Database and RapScore have been critical to our recruiting efforts by giving us a better glimpse into what the athletes we are watching online can do with the baseball."

RapScore is a proprietary technology that was created as the standard scale for player development and recruiting. It is a baseball and softball scouting tool built to rank any baseball or softball player in the world.

What is a RapScore?

In collaboration with Driveline, RapScore was developed as the first standardized score for baseball and softball scouting and recruiting. Utilizing a 20-80 scale, RapScore provides a quantifiable way to compare athletes of all ages.

Compete with top prospects

RapScores help baseball and softball scouts identify player talent without physically seeing a player perform. Scouts and players alike can view top scores on the Rapsodo National Player Database and see where players rank amongst their peers.

Develop softball and baseball scouting reports

RapScore is a quantifiable player development and evaluation tool that can be used to track player performance over time. It takes a player’s raw data and shows their strengths and weaknesses as well as how they rank against their peers.

How do you get a RapScore?

A RapScore requires players to complete a standardized and scripted bullpen or batting session at a Rapsodo Certified facility or event. The Rapsodo video function will be required during all Certified tests to ensure there is a breakdown of the athlete’s mechanics with verified data.

What do you get?

Players that complete the RapScore test will have their score listed on the National Player Database and receive the videos from their RapScore session. Additionally, they will get a PDF report that shows their RapScore along with performance breakdowns for each data point. The RapScore Recruiting Package can easily be shared with college coaches and scouts.

RapScore Scale for Player Evaluation

RapScore is one scale made up of four tiers to accurately rank players from all experience levels. No matter the level, each player who completes a verified session will receive a RapScore number that compares them to players within their tier, as well as the tier above. Through this ranking system, coaches will now be able to rely on RapScore to identify, evaluate and compare players with a data driven number that is a standard benchmark to use across the industry.

Understanding the RapScore Player Evaluation

RapScore uses Rapsodo’s existing HITTING and PITCHING technology to quantify a player’s personal metrics, and utilizes the principals of the 20-80 scale to rank players amongst their peers and evaluate performance. RapScore’s pitching algorithm compares an individual’s pitch metrics to the ideal form of that pitch type. At the end of the session, a player’s RapScore is calculated based on dynamic weighing of the pitches thrown. Hitting RapScore is determined using a player’s max and average exit velocity as well as launch angle throughout a certified session. These session metrics are compared by the athlete’s level and accurately placed on the 20-80 scale.
