LSU Commit, Worcester Academy Grad Mavrick Rizy to Start Home Opener

Worcester, MA - When the Bravehearts open the season on May 25th, they will do so with the #1 ranked pitching prospect in Massachusetts on the bump, Mavrick Rizy. The Fiskdale-native and Worcester Academy grad will join the Bravehearts in the summer before heading down to Baton Rouge, LA to join the LSU Tigers. 


The 6’ 9” right-hander will not be the first member of the Rizy family to toe the rubber for the Bravehearts. Kyle Rizy, the older brother of Mavrick was a Bravehearts top starter in 2022, and a Futures League All-Star. The older Rizy shined with a 2.62 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 44.2 innings pitched.


“This is what Bravehearts Baseball is all about,” said Bravehearts Head Coach Alex Dion. “The Bravehearts strive to put the area’s best collegiate talent on the field, and we believe Mavrick is a great example of that. The baseball talent in this area has grown tremendously over the last ten years, and we’re excited to showcase the best local talent in Central Mass on the Bravehearts." 


In total, the Bravehearts have 17 Division I schools represented on the roster this season, including three of the Power Five conferences. The Bravehearts will have additional SEC representation with Charlton-native and Alabama Shortstop Joey Rubin on the team’s roster. Other notable schools represented include Kansas State, Michigan, and Florida Atlantic. 


The Bravehearts open the season on May 25th at 6:30 pm against the Westfield Starfires. Fans can purchase tickets at www.Worcesterbravehearts.com
