He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. His son, Allen Ripley, was also a major league pitcher.

Ripley was 18 years old when he entered the majors in 1935 with the Boston Red Sox, to become the youngest major league player during that season.

In two relief appearances, Ripley allowed four runs and seven hits, giving up three walks without strikeouts in 4.0 innings of work for a 9.00 earned run average. He did not have a decision or saves and never appeared in a major league game again.
