Goodbye to Kris Bryant

???????????????????????????????Boise Hawks fans knew that the time would come – for those of us around the game, we had three dates circled.  The day Kris Bryant would leave Boise for a bigger challenge up the ladder of professional baseball.

Many thought it would be August 5 – the first day of the All-Star Break. Others thought August 12, a off-day for the Boise Hawks, while some thought August 16 – the day the Hawks embark on the grueling Western Idaho Fair road trip.

August 12 was the day – as while he was enjoying a peaceful day at Roaring Springs in Meridian, the second overall pick in the 2013 draft learned he was headed to the East Coast to the Daytona Cubs.

Luckily for me, I had the opportunity to sit down with Bryant for a good nine-minute interview – and asked him some questions others hadn’t.  You can listen to the interview here – it will run tonight during the second segment of Hawkstown Tonight, along with a montage of Bryant’s top highlights as a Boise Hawk.

Truly a professional in all sense of the word – Bryant has the potential to be a superstar.  Big, strong athletic build; charisma; engaging; very intellectual; and can play the game.  The Cubs have themselves another star in the making – alongside the Almora’s, the Baez’s, and the Soler’s.

It was a fun ride – as Bryant leaves town with the third longest active hit streak currently in Boise Hawks history (Stephen Bruno still is riding a 22-game hit streak from last year, Matt Szczur hit safely in all 18 games with the Hawks in 2010).
