Pichardo Named Baserunner of the Year

Spinners outfielder Wilfred Pichardo played in just one game at LeLacheur Park before injuring himself in the Spinners Stedler Division clinching win. However, Pichardo showed in his two at-bats his incredible blazing speed, turing routine groundballs into bang-bang plays at first base. In the GCL this season, Pichardo led the GCL Red Sox with 60 hits and 42 stolen bases, setting a new league record for stolen bases. In three games with the Spinners, the 18-year-old Pichardo was 2-for-7 with a stolen base.

Pichardo does not look like your typical player, standing 5’9″ and weighing 146 pounds. Despite his diminutive stature, Pichardo is a very talented prospect. Congratulations, Wilfred.
