Escobedo and Riddle shine at All-Stars

Aaron Tohtsoni/Arizona Silver Belt Miami’s Matt Riddle rounds the bases at All-Stars.

Miami High School’s dynamic duo of Gabe Escobedo and Matt Riddle were selected for the Arizona Baseball Coach’s Association All-Star series played at Goodyear Ballpark.

The pair suited up for the 1A-3A South All-Star team. The South defeated the North 15-4.

The game served as one last opportunity for the players to don a Miami Vandal uniform.

“When my coach told me I was very excited, the experience was fun and everyone got along and we all had a good time,” said Escobedo. “Throwing on a Vandal uniform for the last time was tough.”

Escobedo and Riddle have had busy senior seasons leading the Vandals to the state basketball tournament as well as the state baseball semifinals.
