MLB Debut of Umpire Jeremy Riggs

Umpire Jeremy Riggs made his MLB debut during Tuesday's White Sox-Indians doubleheader alongside Chief Dan Iassogna and his crew of Ben May and Tripp Gibson.

Riggs, who officiated Game 1 of the double-dip at first base before shifting to third for the nightcap, began his Minor League career in 2009, officiating the Gulf Coast, Appalachian, South Atlantic, Arizona Instructional, Carolina, Southern, and International Leagues, in addition to the Arizona Fall League.

Riggs officiated the 2010 Southern League All-Star Game and 2017 Triple-A All-Star Game.

Riggs is the third rookie umpire to make his MLB debut during the 2020 regular season.
