MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Former West Virginia center fielder Bobby Boyd was named to the New York-Penn League All-Star Game last Saturday. One day later Boyd was promoted to the Class A Quad Cities River Bandits of the Midwest League.
 
“The jerseys are red and black and it’s just like Tri-City, so I just try to not get too far ahead of myself,” Boyd told the Quad-City Times. “I was just thinking it’s just like any other game I’ve been playing all season so I just went out there and did what I’ve been doing all year.”
 
Boyd, who had been playing for the Tri-City ValleyCats, had an average of .333 with 30 runs, six doubles, nine RBIs and 13 stolen bases.
 
In his first game with the River Bandits on Sunday, Boyd went 2-for-3 with one RBI.
 
In 2014 with the Mountaineers, Boyd finished with a Big 12- and team-leading .356 batting average, along with eight doubles, two triples, one homer, 24 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. Boyd was drafted in the eighth round by the Houston Astros.
