Debuted for Richmond in front of 88,180 spectators.
Richmond used its only selection, No. 18 overall, in the 2018 Rookie Draft to recruit Subiaco forward/midfielder Liam Baker.
Baker played with West Perth in 2016 and represented WA at U18 national level.
In 2017 he moved clubs to Subiaco where he played 13 league games as a midfielder/forward. He averaged 16 disposals and kicked 19 goals in 2017 with four tackles per game.
Baker is a superbly balanced player who is highly skilled on both sides of his body with elite crumbing ability. Baker has great defensive instincts as a forward, constantly harassing the opposition and intercepting loose balls.
Baker ran a 10:24 3km time trial at the 2016 National Combine to rank in the top 15 of that draft class.
