Rio Ruiz was the 3rd basemen for the 2013 season at the Quad City River Bandits. 3rd base is a base that isn’t that easy or hard, but you always have to be alert. Rio was always alert and ready to go. He was a great 3rd basemen. He made some mistakes, but overall he is a very good 3rd basemen. He had a lot of good hits, even a few home runs. He hit 12 home runs to be exact. He had 63 RBI’s , and 12 stolen bases. He left the season with an average of 260. Rio is a good player on and off the field. Between batting and defensive fielding.
Like Carlos Correa, Rio has a great personality. He is also quiet, but at times he is joking around. He is always trying to get a laugh out of some people. Or to just get them smiling. Rio was good with kids. He was a fun, and cool person to get to know. He had a bubbly personality. He smiled a lot, but he stayed focused on what was important. He was always happy to talk to kids, but at the same time he gets annoyed when he walks away, and sits down in the dugout. He doesn’t like to get called back over to the place he just signed for people. One time I was helping a kid and called his name to get him to sign something for the kid. He knows me so when he just gave me a look like do I have to? I said please. He and some of the other players just started laughing, but he walked over and signed for the little kid.
Rio like most players get mad when they make a mistake or get a bad hit. Rio has made a few mistakes, and bad hits, and gets mad, but he doesn’t show it all the time. Some times it slips he will get angry and put his stuff away angrily. or say a cuss word, but he mostly controlled it. He always learned from what he did wrong. You always see him in the batting cages. He uses the batting cages to help him. The best thing about Rio is that he never gives up. He keeps on trying. He makes mistakes. He tries to fix them. He is always trying his best to be the best he can be.
Rio is a good player on and off the field. He is a very caring guy. He has a bubbly personality. He never gives up in what ever he is doing. He keeps trying until he had fixed it has done every thing he can. He is a good 3rd basemen. His personality is what makes him fun. He tries hard, and does everything in his power to be the best he can. He is always trying to have fun while he is playing, but he is always focused on what he can to be better, and what he is doing during the game.
