Boise Hawks Dominate South All-Star Selections

?????EVERETT, Wash. – Eight Boise Hawks players were named South Division All-Stars for the upcoming Northwest League All-Star Game, to be played at Everett Memorial Stadium on August 6.

Four of the selections will start for the South Division team – catcher Lance Rymel, first-baseman Jacob Rogers, second-baseman Danny Lockhart, and designated hitter Yasiel Balaguert.

Rymel, a 28th round pick of the Cubs in the 2012 is hitting .307 with eight RBI on the season and is one of the top defensive catchers in the NWL.  Rogers, a 40th round pick in 2012, is tied for the league lead with 27 RBI and ranks second in the league with five home runs.  Lockhart, a tenth round pick of the Cubs in 2011, is hitting .311 with 16 RBI and has four three-hit games this season.  Balaguert, a free agent acquisition in 2012, is hitting .265 with four homers, eight doubles, and 27 RBI.

Other starters for the South include Salem-Keizer third-baseman Sam Eberle, Salem-Keizer shortstop Jeremy Sy, Salem-Keizer right-fielder Tyler Hollick, Eugene center-fielder Ronnie Richardson, and Hillsboro left-fielder Yogey Perez-Ramos.

Four Hawks were named reserves – including outfielder Shawon Dunston Jr., utility-man David Bote, and pitchers James Pugliese and Tyler Bremer.

With the Hawks winning the then East Division pennant last season, Boise manager Gary Van Tol and hitting coach Bill Buckner make up the coaching staff for the South squad.
