Name- BARRY "B.J." RICHMOND
Residence- Gastonia, N.C.
DOB- Feb. 3, 1984
04 Club- Ogden (Rookie)
Right now he's all projection. Discovered by scout Lon Joyce at Spartanburg Methodist (S.C.) Junior College, he has the body, the strength and the speed to become a player who can both hit for power and steal bases.
A seventh-round selection in the June draft, he showed only flashes of what might be as he was in and out of the lineup at Ogden, finishing .267-1-22 with four stolen bases. Learning to hit to all fields, he progressed well enough to provide some optimism.
