07/30/2017 - Interactive Video Program - River Forest (Chicago), IL Alexander is a 1B/LHP who will graduate in 2023. Defensively at 1B, he shows aggressive footwork and works into a low/athletic fielding position. He fields the ball with soft hands and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. On the hill, this lefty gathers over the rubber and keeps his eyes locked in. He delivers a FB with sinking action from a 3/4 arm slot and finishes strong towards home plate. With the stick, Alexander uses a middle of the field approach with a quiet head. He takes aggressive hacks as he looks to power up pitches in the zone. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Quicker feet 2. Develop softer hands 3. Arm strength (long toss) Pitching 1. Be a strike thrower 2. Strong frontside 3. Work in line Offense 1. Develop rhythm 2. Improve bat speed 3. Lower 1/2 drive
