Vincent Passalacqua was a member of the Class of 1996. As a freshman Vince started his baseball career on the junior varsity squad as a pitcher and first baseman. In his freshman year of 1993 while playing JV he was called up to the varsity for the playoffs to pitch and helped team win a crucial playoff game. His Varsity career continued in fine fashion.

During the 1995 division qualifiers he pitched three innings combining with fellow Hall of Famer Joe Juliano for a three hitter. It was in 1996, his senior season, that Vincent distinguished himself for both the RHS team and throughout the Public League. That highlight reel consisted of a game where Roxborough defeated Mastbaum 13-1. Vincent went 3 for 4 with a double, homer and four RBIs. He earned 1st Team All-Public and All-City honors as a pitcher-1st Baseman. He was also selected to play on the Carpenter Cup team from 1994-1996. It was in his senior year he attracted the attention of several Major League scouts, including the Phillies and Mets.

Vince went on to play baseball at Glouster County College until an arm injury ended his career.
