07/13/2012 - 2012 Team One South Showcase Alex is an average sized SS with good skills. Defensively, Alex has soft hands, quick feet, and he flashes a solid backhand. He has a clean exchange and throws with a good arm across the diamond. A looser arm action will help defensive skills improve. At the plate, Alex has good balance, a square set-up, and he uses all fields. Work on his load, a shorter swing, and more lower 1/2 can help hitting improve.
