Richie Palacios, INF, Towson University
Sophomore/Brooklyn, NY/Berkeley Carroll School

A consensus Freshman All-American last season, Palacios is back for round two of his college baseball career. He made an immediate impact for the Tigers, setting a school record with 32 stolen bases as well as Towson’s freshman record for hits with 74. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound lefty batter was voted by the league’s head coaches as one of the top pure hitters and defensive infielders in the CAA.

Palacios comes from a baseball family: His father, Richard, made it to Triple-A in Detroit’s system; his uncle, Rey, played for the Kansas City Royals; and his brother, Josh, was selected last year in the fourth round by the Toronto Blue Jays out of Auburn University. Towson looks to improve on its 20-35 record from 2016, hoping to get back to the CAA Tournament for the first time since winning it in 2013 and advancing to the Chapel Hill Regional.
