Alex Brush grew up playing baseball in San Rafael, CA, just 20 minutes north of San Francisco. Alex played travel baseball year round from the age of 12 – 18, when he decided to take an early retirement from the sport due to back injury. Alex was a three year starter at catcher for his high school varsity team, and was named 2nd team all-league and 1st team all-league his Junior and Senior years respectively. These awards all pale in comparison to his title as single-season home run king of the 12u Ross Valley Little League, and he was often called the younger, right-handed version of Barry Bonds.
Alex attended University of Puget Sound where he graduated with his Bachelor’s in Biology in 2013, and fell in love with the Northwest in the process. Having spent the past 4 years working with at-risk youth in various settings, Alex is now attending Western Washington as a graduate candidate to become a high school biology teacher. As a lifelong student of the game, Alex is excited to work with youth in the coaching setting and to bring his love of the game and experience working with youth to the diamond.
