01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (FL) Briggs is a solid R/R (6'0"/190) catcher who can swing it with power. Offensively, this righty shows an open stance with fluid rhythm and active hands working back into a strong launch position. + bat speed and a strong lower 1/2, result in the ball exploding off of the barrel. He battles at the plate - collecting 2 singles and 2 walks at the event. Behind the dish, he sits in well with flexion & sway tracking pitches into a soft mitt. He is quick laterally to body up / center pitches in the dirt, keeping the ball in front. Transfer to throw is quick with backspin/accuracy on his throws down to 2B - pop times at 1.95. Richards is a talented 2022 grad who has the tools that will make an immediate impact at the next level.
