kentucky-riddle-0326 Joshua Travis Riddle was born and raised in Frankfort, Kentucky, attending Western Hills High School, and winning Mr. Kentucky Baseball his senior year. JT went on to play for the Wildcats at the University of Kentucky before being selected in the 13th round of the 2013 MLB draft by the Miami Marlins. Riddle was just called to the majors last week, as he had his first major league hit four days ago. Riddle's first major league home run was a big one, a walk-off to push the first place Marlins past the New York Mets. Take a look: Here is what JT had to say about the huge career moment after the game, including a shaving cream pie to the face. Congratulations to JT Riddle from all of the Big Blue Nation. Keep swinging a hot stick JT! @BrettBibbinsKSR
