Notes

Comments

4/11/22

Uncommitted. Athletic frame, lean, 6-foot-1, 175-pound left-handed hitting first basemen. Richardson batted leadoff and started at first base. Showed well at the plate, ready to hit; balanced stance, open feet, vertical bat to start, active hands, slow, controlled load. Strong, short swing, approach to the gaps. During his first at-bat, Richardson took an 87 mph first pitch fastball to right center for a double. In the second at-bat on a 1-0 count, lined an RBI single to right field to give his team a 2-1 lead at the time. Defensively at first base, he has the ability to pick the baseball and works with fluid footwork around the bag. Richardson came in to pitch as well; going two innings, giving up one earned run on two hits and striking out two. Working out of a short arm action, high ¾ slot. Clean, easy fastball sat 83-85 mph. Working off the fastball was a curveball with slurve-like action, sat 74-75 mph. Also featured a straight changeup sitting 78-80 mph.
