COACH RITSCHE ON MOORE:  “Travis is projected to hit in the top of our order as he has ridiculous speed and has the right approach to near at the top of the lineup.  My coaching staff has been working hard to amend his linear hitting mechanics to a rotational hitting approach.  He’s a very strong kid that has potential to drive the ball gap to gap and can easily turn doubles into triples.  He’s already proven to be a major threat on the base paths and has the ability to be a “game-changer.  I predict a huge season out of Travis in 2013.”
