"For 4 years I was lucky enough to be Riley’s throwing partner. For most that sounds like not much, but the amount of fun and laughs he and I shared for those countless times will never leave me. Most of our fellow teammates wondering how Riley and I would finish throwing so much quicker than everyone. The coaches even a few times made us go back out there and throw some more because “it wasn’t long enough to get warmed up.” The laughs will never be forgotten, but Riley’s knuckle ball might be the most vivid memory. For those who have never had to catch it, you are lucky. It was something out of a movie and I for one could never catch it. My shins got hit every day but somehow it was always funny and happy and there isn’t another person in the world who could’ve made getting pegged in the shins fun, but Riley.
Love and miss you"
