Ken Giles shares advice at Rio Grande

Ken Giles shares advice at Rio Grande

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Ken Giles is never too busy to stop by his former high school and share a story or two.

The Philadelphia Phillies pitcher spent Monday sharing stories and encouraging young Ravens baseball players.

“My job, my attitude, I always wanted to become the best,” said Giles. “I always wanted to be who I am today.”

Giles was able to live out a dream and turn away naysayers when he became a major league pitcher. He says the toughness he learned at Rio Grande helped him to make the journey. Giles was in a combined no hitter last season. He also had a 3 and 1 record and 1.18 earned run average.

“I tried so hard to get it back to a sub one,” said Giles.”I needed a couple of more outings. They were trying to cut back and protect me during the end of the season.”

Giles is hoping 2015 is even better. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
