2 new Biscuits players are teammates once again

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Joey Rickard and Jeff Malm are two of the newest faces for the 2014 Montgomery Biscuits, but as teammates, these two go way back.

Rickard and Malm grew up playing ball together in Las Vegas. That includes all four years on the same high school team at Bishop Gorman High School.

The two haven't been on the same team since their senior year in 2009.

Malm was drafted straight out of high school by the Rays in 2009.

Rickard went to the University of Arizona for three years before being drafted by the Rays in 2012.

They meet again for the first time in professional ball in Montgomery.

"We always knew it was a possibility, but you never know how it will work out," Rickard said.

Maybe the two will be teammates down the road in Tampa.
