David Ricker is a 2006 1B/LHP with a 6'2'', 200 lb. frame from Edneyville, North Carolina, who attends Hendersonville HS. Defensively he has good hands at first base with nice footwork around the bag. At the plate he is a switch hitter with similar approaches from both sides of the plate. He uses a line drive swing plane with a short and compact swing. Ricker has quick hands, especially on the inside pitch, and stays inside the ball well. There is strength in his swing and he shows projectable power. As many followers of HS baseball know, Ricker is not only a switch hitter, but he is also a switch pitcher. He can comfortably pitch with both arms and can get hitters out either way. His fastball topped out at 85 while throwing left handed, and 83 while throwing right handed. He has solid arm speed with a quick motion to the plate, but has a live arm. He also has a plus change, and a late breaking slider with hard bite. He seemed to hurt himself when he was pitching right handed as he continually stretched out his back. He is a fun player to watch, and has the ability to help a college team on the mound and at the plate. He is an outstanding student as well.
