Riley Riggs is a 6th grade baseball all-star! He’s been playing around four years and plans on pursuing his baseball career in college.

When asked why he decided to play he responded saying, “the sport seemed like a lot of fun.” Currently, he plays catcher on a team with the Gulf Breeze Rec Center baseball program, in which he meets up to practice every Monday and Friday with teammates. One such teammate, Hayden Henderson, says, “He’s funny and a good friend.”

Riley also explained how he loved the Boston Red Sox and his favorite player is “Big Papi” (David Ortiz) because, “my friend who doesn’t really like the team anymore got me into watching them…I haven’t missed a game since.”

When asked about his own team, he answered with, “We are a very tight group of people…never bringing down players.”

He continues playing baseball because he claims, “…it’s always a challenge; you’re always learning new things.”
