Amaya Named to NWL All-Star Team!

In my opinion the Boise Hawks got jobbed.  They are the hottest team in the NWL, and are tied with Yakima for the best record in the East League overall.  That’s saying something considering how bad of a first half they had, so I was expecting more than one all-star.  Oh well, guess Boise will just have to go out and win the whole thing instead.  The man who did get elected to the all-star team is Gioskar Amaya, the second baseman regularly led off for Boise and was a big reason for the second half surge.  I love the fact that Amaya gets on base (.373 OBP), he understands his role, and that’s not the easiest thing to do for a 19 year-old.

 Congrats to Gioskar, and best of luck to him and his Boise teammates in the playoffs!
