Riggleman visits Frederick Memorial Hospital
Earlier this week, Nats Manager Jim Riggleman teamed-up with Screech and toured the newly-opened Pediatric Emergency Department at Frederick Memorial Hospital.
A native of Rockville, Md., Riggleman didn’t hesitate when presented the opportunity to visit the facility by his former Frostburg State University teammate Ken Coffey, who now serves as president/chief development officer of the hospital.
“I’ve got a lot of family up here,” Riggleman said. “My mother was treated here. It’s a great hospital. I’m just really appreciative of how well my mother and other members of my family have been treated here through the years, so I got the opportunity to come back up here and jumped at that.”
During the visit, the Nationals skipper signed autographs and spoke with patients, their families and staff members for nearly an hour before attending a speaking engagement with the Rotary Club of Frederick.
