    I’m surprised Alex came in at 100 …. Thought he would come in at between 50-70 . He has an uncanny way of getting things done. He comes from a baseball pedigree area of Vancouver Canada. Many top-notch ballplayers come from this area. Alex is no different. Very explosive bat, quick hands, an average speed around the bases. I will be very surprised if he doesn’t draft first or second round. Also a very solid academic student at Main.
