A former professional baseball player, Jeff Richards displayed his diamond skills to the utmost in his first film, Kill the Umpire (1951), in which he was billed under his given name of Richard Taylor. Richards was subsequently cast in the MGM baseball flicks Angels in the Outfield (1951) and The Big Leaguer (1953), playing the nominal lead in the latter picture. During his MGM years, he also appeared in a number of non-sports efforts; third-billed in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954), he expanded his range to include dancing and singing. After starring in the 1958 TV western Jefferson Drum, Jeff Richards faded from public view.
