Riley made his major league debut Wednesday night and hit a monster 434 ft hr. Last night he went 3 for 4 with a rbi.

booth, thanks for starting this thread on Riley. I was going to when he finally made his MLB debut. What a debut he had! He's one of the white prospects that got mired in the Braves
farm system. He should have been called up sooner, but he's still just 22.
The Braves are certainly a team to pull for as well..

Looking forward to watching Riley as his career blossoms.

Riley continues to impress! Tying HR and winning hit in the Braves win over San Francisco in 13 innings. Riley was 3-6, 3 RBI, and a run scored.
Riley's HR was his 5th in just 9 MLB games. He is hitting .389.

Excellent development. Riley is up there with Pete Alonso and Austin Meadows as my favorite rookies / young players in baseball.
