Jim Riley had a long minor league career and got into one game at the major league level on August 2, 1910, with the Boston Doves. He played five innings in the outfield and had two plate appearances, getting one walk. His minor league years ran from 1906 to 1923 and included parts of six seasons with the Syracuse Stars. He managed in the minors in 1923.
He is not to be confused with the later Jim Riley.
"Infielder (sic) Riley, the Buffalo City League lad, signed by the Boston club, reported to Manager Lake last week. This will not be Riley's first season in league base ball, for he played in North Carolina a year ago, but had to give up because of a fever. Riley is six feet tall and weights 165 pounds." - Sporting Life, August 13, 1910
