I love that they are made for and by high achievers.
Alex is rising through the Minnesota Twins farm system in professional baseball. He primarily plays catcher, the most demanding position in the game. Alex batted .286 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI in 58 games at Double-A Wichita last season. His performance was a “breakout season” that put his name “into discussions for a major league future,” Twins Daily wrote in September 2022. In addition to catching, Alex (6-1, 215) has started games at first base and designated hitter.
A native of Sacramento, Calif., Alex was an All-State player at Jesuit High School who went on to play at University of Utah, Yavapai College in Arizona and Texas Christian University. He helped TCU reach the NCAA Regional Final in 2019 and was drafted by the Twins that June.
“I think my favorite part is the relationship you form with the pitchers,” Alex told Twins Daily about the catcher position. “I take a lot of pride in that. It’s not about me back there. My job is to get the best out of those guys.”
