Dream Achieved

Simeon Woods-Richardson drafted to Mets

The Kempner senior averaged 10 striekouts a game Vype

People spend their entire lives chasing their dream Simeon Woods-Richardson has achieved it at the ripe old age of 18 years old. The 2018 Major League Baseball amateur draft saw over 20 high school prospects receive the opportunity to become a professional in the first two rounds alone.

"This has been a dream for me and it actually came true like words can't describe" says Simeon Woods Richardson on being drafted.

After a senior season that had games packed with scouts with reports as many as 14 for one game, the question was more where not if Simeon would get the call. Woods-Richardson heard his name called near the top of Round 2 at pick #48 overall(6th in Round 2) as a right handed pitcher, he is now in the New York Mets system.

Woods-Richardson is committed to the University of Texas, but pitching in the high 90's on a consistent basis made him a high end prospect on pro scouts radar a few years ago, and this season confirmed Woods-Richardson was more than hype as he delivered dominant starts all season averaging 10 striekouts a game.
