Founder and Director of Player Development

Perry Rigby is the founder of Trident Baseball School — which is proudly based in the one-of-a-kind state of New Mexico.  After playing high school and travel baseball around the Southeast with East Cobb, Dulin's Dodgers, Marucci Elite, and others, Rigby received a full D1 scholarship to The University of Alabama at Birmingham.  After some time at UAB, he transferred to Covenant College where the team won their first Conference title and postseason berth, back-to-back years.  During Rigby's college career he earned many accolades inducing: 1st-Team All-Conference, Single-Season RBI Record, NYCBL 1st team, and NYCBL All-Star Game MVP.

After graduating from Covenant College, Perry started his coaching career as the Varsity Head Coach at Harvester Christian Academy in Georgia. Also, he was the head coach of several travel teams in the Atlanta, Georgia area.  He has been fortunate to see some of his players go on to college programs.  

“Here at Trident Baseball, we have a great desire to know each player on a personal level and help develop players to get to the next level whether that is high school, college, or professional.” Perry said about his baseball program. “Our priority as coaches and staff is to be transformational leaders to our players, families, and communities.”
