Unsigned Senior Spotlight: OF Alexander Haire


Rocco Iervasi
Florida Director of Operations/Area Scout

Our goal at Prep Baseball Report is to promote high school players, and give them the exposure they need to be able to play at the next level. With the 2020 high school season in limbo, we want to continue to be able to promote players, even when baseball is not being played. Starting today, we will be spotlighting several uncommitted seniors to help them get the exposure they need to play at the next level in 2021.

First up is uncommitted 2020 OF Alexander Haire (Berkeley Prep). Haire was a member of our 2018 Future Games team. He has Berkeley Prep out to an 11-0 record in 2020 which included a walk-off home run to beat Calvary Christian earlier this month. Haire is ranked 122nd in our Florida Class of 2020 rankings.
