Our #15A hitter (the numbering gets easier as we go) is the 6-foot-2, 260 pound first baseman and left handed pitcher Alec Aleywine, from Gulf Coast State!
The New Market Rebel played a very important role in the team’s first winning record in four seasons, pulling double duty both at the plate and on the mound.
And he hit very well, too. Here are his seasonal hitting stats:
Alex finished 10th in the league in on-base percentage, 1st in walks, tied for 5th in RBIs, 6th in runs, and was named 2nd team All-Valley at “utility” (for players who both hit and pitched). He also went 4-0, 3.82, with a 1.37 WHIP in 37 2/3 innings on the mound.
For Gulf Coast, as a freshman, Alec did this:
Rather comparable to what he did in New Market! He also went 2-1, 6.26, with a 1.73 WHIP in 23 innings pitched.
