Beach Bums trade Burch to Fargo-Moorhead

The Traverse City Beach Bums have traded infielder Chase Burch to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks of the American Association for a player to be named later and other considerations. Burch spent the past four seasons with Traverse City, becoming the all-time leader in a handful of offensive categories.

The 27-year-old led the Beach Bums with home runs and RBI in 2013, going deep 15 times and driving in 66 runs. The slugging first baseman also went on a surge in the playoffs, swinging a team leading .438 with four home runs and six RBI.
