12/20/2015 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 1 Richie is a very coachable, hardworking player that is a student of the game with a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he continues to show best through an open / athletic setup. He works on time and uses his lower half well through a short / direct swing path. Hands work inside the ball as he utilizes all fields through a line drive type swing path. Power numbers will increase as he builds overall body strength and improves bat speed. At SS, he is a smooth / fluid fielder with hands / feet working well together through the fielding process as he plays through balls well but will benefit by presenting glove more out front. He will improve range as he improves foot quickness. With 6 years to further develop, Ritchie has abilities with time and room to improve.
