Coach Corbin Quote: We have put Richie in every imaginable scenario in the last three years as a pitcher and he has rewarded us. He is an unselfish kid who will pitch in any role to help us win. Because he is our most experienced left handed arm, he will pitch some very important innings for us and play an important role.
