    Bechtold batted just .218 as a redshirt freshman at Maryland in 2016. He transferred to Chipola and took off under the tutelage of head coach Jeff Johnson. Bechtold is a righthanded hitter capable of generating plus bat speed with a compact swing path. He's able to drive the ball to all fields and he has grown into more power this spring. Bechtold got off to a hot start to the season and put up excellent numbers for Chipola, batting .421/.535/.683 and hitting 11 home runs.
