The Junior at Marmion Academy in North Aurora played a big roll on his varsity team as sophomore this past season and will be the foundation of the Cadets this coming year. Although Alex is new to the DeMarini organization he has played with a number of players on our DeMarini teams including Tyler Halas and Ke'Bryan Hayes this past summer on the Future Elite. He will also be reunited with grammar school and childhood friend Laren Eustace who lives in the same home town of Batavia.
Alex will be continuing to work this off-season on his pitching with Tampa Rays Pitching coach RC Lichtenstein who will be serving as a Team DeMarini pitching coach this fall. This will be the fifth season that Alex has worked with RC and we expect that he will only continue to get better.
We asked coach Charlie Hayes about Alex and he said, "We love Alex on the mound and in the field, but his bat is something special! Alex will bring additional offense to the team and will only continue to get better as he plays the top competition around the country that Team DeMarini is scheduled to play".
