Who is Theo Alexander?
When a player is released, as I was in August of 2015, I asked myself that very same question. Who am I? I instantly answered I am baseball.
I started playing baseball when I was 5 years old and I have never stopped nor is it time for me to stop now. I am only 20 years old (21 on August 25th). I have a lot of baseball still to play.
This last year has taught me a lot of tough life lessons and I chose to take the high road and better my life. It made me question my love for baseball and was I done? I had the perfect opportunity to be done, but baseball runs in my blood. I am going to do everything in my power to be THAT success story. Hopefully my life lessons will be a lesson that up and coming baseball players will learn from and even though they think it will never happen to them, know that IT does happen to those who think that. Trust me.
If you need for me to talk to your son or if you want to talk to my mom to talk to your son, please call us.
Whats next for me? A Lot! I am working out with the best inspirational, motivational trainer every week. I am going to find all of the "open walk on work outs" and if I am not picked up by another team I will be going to the California Winter League for the Independent Frontier Baseball League and hopefully picked up from there to a team!
I am not done playing baseball, I have really only just begun.
