Percival Sumner "Pop" Rising (January 24, 1877 – January 28, 1938) was an American right fielder in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Boston Americans during the 1905 season. Rising was born in Industry, Pennsylvania. He threw right-handed (unknown batting side). He was purchased by the Boston Americans from the New London, Connecticut team for $1,200 (August 8, 1905).

In an 11-game career, Rising was a .103 hitter (3-for-29) with two runs, two RBI, one double and one triple without home runs. In six outfield appearances, he did not committed an error in nine chances for a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage. He also played an errorless game at third base (two chances).
