07/30/2013 - College PREP - Raleigh, NC Richard is a young, switch hitting SS with a thin frame. Defensively, Richard has soft / sure hands, playable footwork, and he presents his glove well. He fields in a low position, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy from a long arm action to his target. Defense can get better if Richard can field further out front, play more through, and quicken his exchange. Offensively, Richard is equally as good from both sides of the plate. From the right he has good balance, a level swing, and a line drive approach. From the left, Richard has a level swing and he hits well to the opposite field. A sooner stride and dded bat speed will help offense improve.
