Catching Prospect Cameron Rupp Interview

Cameron Rupp is a catching prospect currently playing with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. The righty hitting Rupp was drafted in the third round of the 2010 amateur draft by the Phillies, after his junior season at the University of Texas.

Rupp, who lives in Plano, TX, a suburb of Dallas, was assigned to short-season Williamsport after signing his first professional contract last year. In 55 games with the Crosscutters in the New York-Penn League, Rupp posted a .218 batting average with 5 homeruns and 28 RBI. Following the season, the 22-year-old Rupp participated in the Florida Instructional League.

Off to a slow start, batting .182 through 3 games with Lakewood, Rupp is anxious for the weather and his bat to heat up, as he plans to help the BlueClaws chase a third consecutive South Atlantic League championship this year.

Last week, I spoke with Cameron about his draft process, his new home ballpark, joining the Twitter community and plenty more. Check out the media player below to listen to excerpts of the interview.
