Alex Clemmey is living the life of a top MLB Draft prospect heading into his senior year of high school.
The Bishop Hendricken (R.I.) ace spent the summer picking and choosing the most high-profile events and camps across the nation. The 6-foot-6 left-hander with a 97-mph fastball was in such demand that he declined invites to a handful of highly scouted events that most high school seniors can only dream of attending.
The Area Code Games in California? No, not this year. A chance to pitch against Cape Cod Leaguers at Fenway Park? Nope, maybe next time.
Clemmey prioritized USA Baseball opportunities and all but secured his selection to USA Baseball's U18 National Team this morning by pitching two scoreless innings in a Stars vs. Stripes matchup at 18U National Team Training Camp. Clemmey earned the start on the final day, allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out four.
