Alex is another of those unselfish guys whose devotion and commitment to kids sports has contributed to the community and the kids whose life he touched.
He was a four sport star at Conyngham Township until 1941. Like so many others at the time, he left school to enlist in the Army.
From 1943 to 1945 he was a Military Policeman with the U.S. Army in Germany. While there he found time to compete in football, baseball, and boxing. After the was he returned home and got involved with semi-pro baseball with Star Lane.
In 1950 he was a coach for the Mount Carmel Legion Team which won several league championships. In 1958 the Atlas Fire Company Softball team. In 1963 the Atlas Hose Little League Team. In 1966 the Atlas Black Diamond Teener Team. In 9173 he tool over the Mt. Carmel Rotary Teener Team. Everywhere he went there was a common occurrence: his teams executed fundamentals extremely well and the won championships.
He has won championships on every level. Bush League, Little League, and Teener League. And always he coached because he loved baseball, the kids and the opportunity to be around the game.
