Alex K Continues Hot Streak

Wins Ballhawk League Week 20 With 41 Balls, Also Snags Another Foul Ball

Alex K hit the road for Week 20 of the Ballhawk League, traveling to Chicago, Detroit, and Pittsburgh. He returned home with 41 baseballs, his 2nd career foul ball, and a Ballhawk League victory.

Averaging 8.2 balls per game over the 5-game stretch, Alex snagged 8 Hit Balls, 29 Thrown Balls, and 4 Device Balls. For the season, he has now established himself as the leader in Thrown Balls with a League-best 210. Alex has been on a hot streak for the past month or so, winning 3 out of the last 5 weeks in the Ballhawk League.

Fresh off his first ever foul ball just a week earlier, Alex snagged another one at Comerica Park in Detroit on August 20. It happened in the top of the first inning, when Jose Lopez fouled a Jarrod Washburn pitch straight back behind home plate.

"It was going in a high arc to my left, so I ran over there," he wrote on his blog. The ball landed in the second row of seats and trickled down to the first. "It came into view underneath a seat and it started rolling towards me," he wrote. "so I stuck my arm through some metal bars and tried grabbing the ball. I pulled my arm out and in it was my 3rd baseball of the day and 2nd lifetime game ball!"

At a young age Alex continues to make his mark in the Ballhawk world. Already, he possesses the 2nd highest lifetime average on, at 6.26 Balls Per Game.
