Snuck in about 4 innings of the Windsor HS @ Cardinal Newman HS game in Santa Rosa before I decided to get me and my son home for dinner... that and the rain was coming quickly, so it seemed like a good time to exit, stage left. Cardinal Newman was ahead 3-0 at the time, behind the pitching of junior RHP Jason Alexander and hitting of senior OF Steven Stout (video at end of article). (UPDATE: CNHS won this game 13-12 after 22 runs were scored in the last 3 innings.)
I went to this game for my first look at Alexander, the youngest brother of three talented Alexander pitchers, as well as a look at senior Windsor SS Miles Williams. Williams was on my fall follow list before the Braves decided to get me started on my blogging career.
Alexander is an interesting young pitching prospect. His oldest brother, RHP Stuart Alexander, was drafted in 2003 by the Marlins out of Windsor HS and was just released this spring. His brother Scott is a junior LHP in his first season at Sonoma State, after transferring from Pepperdine University. Scott is a very talented prospect and is going to be drafted in June but to this point, for all of his talent (and he can dial up his fastball to 94 mph), he has had a very poor season for SSU. Stuart (6'4" 225) and Scott (6'3" 210) are both much bigger than Jason (6'1" 175 and he doesn't quite look that big). I expect Jason to fill out in the next year or so because he does have a nice frame, with lanky arms and legs, quite the projectable body type. no comments
