We have had a few moves this season, some going up and some heading down, but I wanted to focus on just a couple of the positives tonight. Chadd Krist has made Boise proud with his performance so far for the Peoria Chiefs and Bijan Rademacher was just moved up to Peoria late last night but has already made us proud.
Your former Boise Hawk Chadd Krist has been tearing it up in Peoria since leaving Boise. So far Krist is batting a .500 in four games with eighteen at bats, five runs, nine hits, three doubles, one homerun and five RBI. Krist is from Pataluma, California and went to the University of California, Berkeley where he holds the school’s record for doubles at 65.
Bijan Rademacher was moved up to Peoria after being with your Boise Hawks for just two and a half weeks. “I was excited that I was moving up but I was also sad a little bit because I kind of liked being in Boise with the host family and the atmosphere at the stadium.” Last night Rademacher went 3-4 with three doubles, the first Hawk of the 2012 season to accomplish this record. His last memory at Memorial Stadium will be Jeimer Candelario’s walkoff homerun to win the game. Rademacher immediately came up to me and asked that I grab Candelario for the Player of the Game interview so I did. Rademacher then proceeded to pie Candelario in the face with shaving cream.
Rademacher not only accomplished goals on the field while here in Boise, but also off of the field, or should I say with the community and fans. He volunteered to help out with our Kids Club Camp sponsored by Fred Meyer this past Saturday and also with the 2012 Pacific Source Baseball Camp yesterday. Rademacher was signed up to help with camp today as well but Peoria called!
We also have Izaac Garsez, a Treasure Valley local, who was called up from Mesa and will be your new Boise Hawk as of tonight. Garsez is from Caldwell and attended the College of Idaho. My guess is we will be seeing a lot of Garsez fans out at the Hawks stadium!
