2019 Grad Hunter Richardson Vaults to Top of Exit Velo Leaderboard
Within the last month, we’ve seen a lot of action at the top of the 2019 Leaderboard in Exit Velocity recordings. Evans, Colorado native Tayler Aguilar grabbed the top spot back on May 8 with a 93 mph exit velo reading during his National Tryout in Lakewood, CO. Now, two weeks later, we’ve seen another 2019 grad snag the top spot during a National Tryout event.
Hunter Richardson, a catcher from Enterprise High School in Brookhaven, MS, recorded an exit velocity of 94 mph to take over the No. 1 spot on Baseball Factory’s National Leaderboard for 2019 grads.
Richardson had an impressive overall day, as in addition to the exit velocity, he also jumped onto the Pop Times Leaderboard (2.14) and Raw Velocity (83 mph). The 6’3”, 233-pounder put on an impressive display in batting practice as well. He is certainly a prospect to keep an eye on in the future.
Other players recording exit velocities over the weekend that put them on the leaderboard were fellow 2019 grads Landon Gartman, also from Enterprise High School (Bogue Chitto, MS) at 88 mph, Gaylen Rutledge (Hendersonville, TN) with 86 mph, Garrett Raulston (Bridgeport, AL) with 84 mph, Wyatt Lawley (La Vernia, TX) at 81 mph and Jake Parr (Meridianville, AL) recorded 79 mph.
In addition, Kendall Smith of Antioch, TN registered a 90 mph exit velocity to get on the 2017 leaderboard and Jojo Weeks of Wimberley, TX joined the 2018s recording an impressive 90 mph.
