Card: 2020 Bowman Chrome #CPA-LOH (Autographed)
"(Logan) O’Hoppe, a 23rd-round pick in the 2018 Draft out of St. John the Baptist High School (West Islip, N.Y.), is regarded as a strong defensive catcher with power and patience at the plate. But O’Hoppe was humble when asked to describe his strengths as a player — although it’s clear he takes pride in his defense. 'Everything is a work in progress,' O’Hoppe said." - Bollinger, Rhett. MLB Staff Writer. Family watching, 'grateful' O'Hoppe stars in debut. 29 September 2022.
Logan O'Hoppe (born February 9, 2000 in West Islip, New York) is a professional baseball catcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball (MLB). Logan's mother Angela is Italian American (00:00:33). Growing up on Long Island, Logan was a Yankee Fan, and can be seen in a Jomboy Video catching a Home Run at Yankee Stadium in the bleachers.
He was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 23rd round of the 2018 Major League Baseball draft. He spent his first five professional seasons in the Phillies farm system, garnering media consideration as one of the team's top prospects.
In 2021, he played for three different teams, although 85 of his 104 games were with the Jersey Shore BlueClaws in the High-A East; he added 13 games in AA with the Reading Fightin' Phils, and 7 in AAA with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The result of this whirlwind season was a batting line of .270/.331/.458, with 19 doubles and 17 homers, securing his place among his organization's top prospects. He was named an organizational All-Star, and played in the Arizona Fall League, where he was selected for the All-Star Game.
In 2022, he was at Reading for 75 games, hitting .275 with 15 homers and being named to play in the 2022 Futures Game at Dodger Stadium. With the Phillies solid at the catching position with J.T. Realmuto signed to a long-term contract, he became available to be traded at the trading deadline and on August 3rd was sent to the Los Angeles Angels in return for OF Brandon Marsh. He stayed in AA, being assigned to the Rocket City Trash Pandas of the Southern League.
At Rocket City, he hit .306 in 29 games and received the call-up to L.A. in late September, making his big league debut on September 28th. That day, he started at catcher for the Angels against the Oakland Athletics, going 1 for 3 in a 4-1 win, in a game attended by his parents (Michael & Angela) and his twin sister Melanie. His first MLB hit came in his first big league at-bat, a single to center field off Adrian Martinez.
