Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1995
With determination equal to his enormous talent, Richie Lewis established himself as one of the finest pitchers to ever take the mound at Florida State. Lewis coupled with competitive spirit with his blazing fastball and devastating curve to dominate opposing batters.

In only three seasons (1985-87), Lewis recorded 520 strikeouts in 392.2 innings. This not only remains a Seminole all-time record, but is also second in the NCAA record book. With overpowering arsenal, Lewis led the nation in strikeouts per nine innings in 1986 with a 14.2 average. He finished his career with 38 wins against only 12 losses. After leading FSU to consecutive College World Series appearances, Lewis collected rare back to back First Team All-America honors.

After his junior season, Lewis was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the second round and has enjoyed a long professional career with Major League appearances for both the Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins.
