Five Years Ago with the Hawks

Harvey.jpgOn back to back nights in 2004, former Cubs first-round pick (and current OF with the Tulsa Drillers in the Rockies organization) Ryan Harvey hit two of the more impressive home runs – one over the centerfield wall in Yakima, and one over the centerfield wall in Tri-City.  To this day, they are the only two homers hit to that part of those parks that I’ve ever seen.

In doing some clean-up in the press box, I found old play-by-play tapes and recovered the audio for you.  You will need Windows Media Player to listen to the highlights.

NOTES – The Treasure Valley All-Stars that the Hawks will be playing their exhibition game against on Friday are not high school/college players, but the top players in Boise’s Over-25 and Over-35 men’s baseball league.  The squad will be coached by Andy Swenson.
