SPOKANE - Boise and Spokane are scheduled to open their five-game series with a regularly scheduled game Friday at Avista Stadium - the only stadium in the Northwest League with a natural playing surface and no tarp - followed by two seven-inning games Saturday.
The Friday game starts at 7:30 p.m., and the Saturday doubleheader starts at 6:30 p.m. The Hawks have not played a doubleheader since 2007.
BYU outfielder Jacob Hannemann, 22, a third-round draft pick earlier this month, has signed with Chicago and been assigned to the Hawks, both clubs announced Thursday. Hannemann hit .344 and was named the West Coast Conference Freshman of the Year at BYU this spring.
