Another American Association All-Star will be returning to the RedHawks in 2013, as Zach Penprase comes back to Fargo-Moorhead after a great 2012 campaign.
Penprase did it all for the RedHawks last season — wreaking havoc on the base paths and making plays in the field — Penprase was a key part to the 2012 65-win season. Last year, Penprase broke the team single-season record with 47 stolen bases and currently holds the career record with 189. He led all league shortstops in total chances (507), put outs (151), assists (334) and double plays (89). He also made an impact at the plate as well, batting .311 with 16 doubles, three triples, six home runs and 46 RBIs in 97 games.
In five seasons with Fargo-Moorhead, Penprase has batted .291 with 88 doubles, 14 triples, 24 home runs, 209 RBIs and 376 runs scored in 445 games.
