James David Riggleman (born November 9, 1952 in Fort Dix, New Jersey) is a former Major League Baseball manager. He previously managed the San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs, Seattle Mariners, and the Washington Nationals.

Riggleman was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1974 amateur draft out of Frostburg State University. He was assigned to the double-A level Waterbury Dodgers, where he played third base and second base. During the 1976 season, Riggleman transferred to the St. Louis Cardinals, where he was assigned to the double-A Arkansas Travelers and played in both infield and outfield. His career peaked at the triple-A level, which he reached in the Cardinals organization in 1977 and 1979. His career ended after the 1981 season at the age of 28.

In 1983, Riggleman became manager of the St. Petersburg Cardinals, a class-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. He managed at the double-A level in the Cardinals organization—including with the Arkansas Travelers, the team which he spent most of his playing career with—and at the triple-A level in the San Diego Padres organization.
