Player Profile: Richard Batchelor

I have five cards of Richard Batchelor. This one is from 1994 Stadium Club.

Playing career: Richard Batchelor pitched in parts of three seasons in the major leagues for the Cardinals and Padres. In 43 games he went 5-1 with an ERA of 5.00.

My memories: I remember him being profiled in Yankees magazine as a minor leaguer – they used to do great minor league profiles in those pre-internet days. It was weird to see him finally make the major leagues with another team.

Where he is now: Anyone know where Richard Batchelor is now?

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Richard Batc, between Richard Batchelder, a litigation partner at the law firm Ropes & Gray, and Richard Batchelor Facebook, referring to an article about the social media site by a management consultant. The first entry when you google Richard Batchelor is the consultant, not the ballplayer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Billy Bates.
