garsez returns home as a boise hawk
Former College of Idaho All-American Izaac Garsez returned to the Treasure Valley today, as the Chicago Cubs' farmhand was assigned to the Boise Hawks from the rookie-level Mesa Cubs.
The two-time NAIA All-American, drafted in the 30th Round of the 2012 MLB First Year Players Draft, batted .273 with a homer, three triples, four stolen bases, and eight RBI in the Arizona Rookie League, before his promotion to Boise.
Garsez, who wore No. 35, played right field, and batted 0-for-4 in his debut, is the second former C of I player to play for the Hawks - as Bill Oliver spent the entire 1998 season with the Northwest League club.
Fans who want to watch Garsez in action have 20 more opportunities to do so in the Treasure Valley, including Wednesday night vs. Yakima, and a nine-game homestand, starting July 24. For tickets, contact the Hawks box office at 322-5000.
