Instructional League OVER

Image

YOUR Boise Hawks, along with other young Cubbies and Hawks that have moved on, worked hard in the Instructional League and also had some fun with team bonding. “For team bonding we went out to eat together, went to a concert, went shopping, played video games, went out every now and then but mainly team bonding was on the field because we were there every day between 6am-3pm, so every day we were with each other for about 8 hours on the field,” said YOUR Boise Hawk, Lance Rymel.

“I worked on catching most, receiving, blocking, throwing to bases and just the mental part of the game behind the plate, I really learned a lot, I really don’t know where I see myself next season, I’m just going to show up ready to play every day and wherever they send me I’m going to play hard every day!” Lance got a lot more out of the Instructional League than teammate Trey Martin. “I only lasted 4-6 days because I broke my face, It was the second game of instructs against the Diamond Backs and in my third at bat I took a fastball to my face and fractured three bones.” Trey is no longer in pain, but he is still not able to participate in physical activity until November. Until then, he will be home enjoying his “Zaxby’s.”

Lance, along with YOUR Boise Hawk Tayler Scott, got the difficult question of “out of all of your teammates, who do you miss most?” While I know the answers weren’t 100 percent accurate I would assume it is safe to say that the boys miss all of their teammates in some way or another. Tayler was not in the Instructional League however he was in Arizona to work out a little more before heading home to South Africa. On missing ONE teammate, “I wouldn’t say there’s one that I miss most. There are a couple that I became good friends with that I miss.”  And for Lance, well, he misses everyone. “We all had a good time together, but if I had to pick some it would be the catchers, Chadd Krist, Carlos Escobar, Justin Marra and Ralph Lopez. Just because we were always together and had a lot of laughs and got better together every day.”

The team was heated up in Instructional Leagues, take a look at these numbers and see what you predict for next season.
