Who's the bullpen catcher that is not Mark Salas? He appears to be a young guy. I'm just wondering.

Probably Tyler Flowers?

Nope. Positive it's not Flowers. Kid is out there every day.

Could still possibly be Flowers. Noticed in the past, Thornton, Jenks, Ramon Castro would stroll over to the bullpen mid-game between innings from the dugout. Perhaps you're right and they have 2 now.

Nope. My season tickets are behind the bullpen so I can verify that it's definitely NOT Flowers.

At first I thought it may have been a kid of one of the new coaches - I know Mark Parent has a son playing college baseball - primarily as a 1B.

Perhaps it's a catcher in the Sox farm system who realized that he may not make it to the majors and this way he can stay part of the organization.

Someone in our section said they heard him referred to as Richie during a game this year.

The question is not at all random. It's quite purposive.

I was going to go with Jorge Fabregas, or maybe Brook Fordyce.

Neither.

From my view about three rows behind the Sox bullpen for about 10 games this year I'd say he is a 5'11, Caucasian, male. Medium weight (190ish). He's always very nice. Would just love to know who he is.

It is Adam Ricks. He joined the coaching staff when Kevin Hickey fell ill.

Nice find, thanks.

Pretty much in line what I had said previously - a former minor league player who couldn't quite make it to the big leagues but is still able to stay with the organization.

And perhaps the "Richie" that was overheard in our section was actually something like "Ricksie"

Unless his full nickname is "Richie Ricks".
