1988 Spokane Indians at the Mall - Nikco Riesgo

Nikco Riesgo payed six years of professional baseball. The 1990 Florida State League MVP with the St. Lucie Mets, he made his major league debut in 1991 with the Montreal Expos. He is now a youth baseball coach. He was interviewed in the recent article on the set, saying  "It was my first baseball card so I thought maybe that's just how it was. It was a great way to meet the fans. We might have seen the whole city of Spokane that day, and we were treated like the Beatles. It was the perfect place for us to interact with people." I interviewed him several years ago but he only mentioned his major league card, not any minor league ones.

Not sure where he is in this picture - maybe Washington Photo again? He does look very happy to be there.
