Weekend Baseball Commit: Richard Fitts

Recommended Posts

On Friday, Richard Fitts, RHP (Helena, Alabama) committed to the 2018 class.  On PerfectGame, listed as 6-3, 185 pounds.  Missed last season due to arm injury, but expected to play his senior season.  Below is some of his stuff.  Looks like some nice 2-seam action at 86-87mph, slider around 78mph, and a 71 mph curve ball as of July 2016.  War Eagle!

Also mods, I overlooked that E had already started/pinned a thread for 2018 recruits. Feel free to absorb this thread and move it there to keep the board clean and organized.

Any word on what the arm injury was?  I don't see anything from the usual sources.  If the video is from EC Sox in 2016 that's 87 mph as a 16U.  Pretty strong, but if he was throwing a true slider at the time, that would probably explain the injury (UCL).
