Three Boise Hawks Selected to Northwest League All-Star team

From the offices of the Boise Hawks

Three infielders from the Rockies short-season A Boise affiliate were chosen to play in the Northwest League / Pioneer League All Star Game, which will be hosted by the Rockies Pioneer League affiliate Grand Junction on Aug. 7.

 Boise infielders Daniel Jipping, Danny Edgeworth and Terrin Vavra will be on the Northwest League roster.

Jipping, a 2017 Northwest League All Star and Home Run Derby Champion, leads the Hawks with 6 home runs and has 10 stolen bases. He is third on the team with a .298 batting average. Jipping was a 22nd round selection of the Rockies out of Central Michigan in 2017.

Edgeworth, a 2017 End of the Year Northwest League All Star, leads the Hawks with 12 doubles, and is hitting .276 with a .324 on base percentage. The Rockies selected Edgeworth in the 23rd round of the 2017 draft from Mercer.

Vavra, in 21 games for the Hawks this season, is third on the team, hitting .325. He has hit two home runs, his first being the memorable walk-off 9th inning grand slam on July 11 against Vancouver.

Vavra was the Rockies third-round draft choice this June out of the University of Minnesota. His father, Joe Vavra, is the quality control coach of the Tigers, who previously served as the bench coach for the Twins when current Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire managed the Twins.
