Following a standout performance at the California All-American Games, Baseball Youth’s player development staff was quick to recognize Daniel Rivera’s talent. After earning a promotion to compete with Baseball Youth Elite this spring, Daniel put on a show at Sports Force Park’s Roller Coaster Challenge, counting among his accomplishments a complete game shutout.

Daniel’s recognition is well-deserved after years of hard work, which have included hours of personal hitting and pitching training and living the baseball life each and every day. Following three Baseball Youth Elite events this year, Daniel and his family have become a part of our community and we can’t wait for him to compete with us again!


Baseball Rebellion’s JK Whited breaks down the swing of this week’s Baseball Youth Player to Watch Daniel Rivera. JK shows you how Daniel generates his power by timing his leg kick and then opening his front side during contact. Check out our weekly swing breakdowns on our Youtube channel or Baseball Youth’s website!
