HARVARD, Mass. – Alex Clemmey is living the dream of every travel ball player across New England.
- He committed to Vanderbilt as a high school freshman.
- He has been selected to play in every high-profile showcase in the nation over the last three years.
- He can throw a fastball that tops out at 97 mph.
- He is a potential first-round prospect for the 2023 MLB Draft.
Players and parents around New England might look to the 6-foot-6 left-handed Clemmey (Middletown, R.I.) as an example of how a prospect can climb to the top of his class through a year-round commitment to the sport. These days, that year-round commitment comes primarily in the form of travel ball. Clemmey’s program is North East Baseball – arguably the most prolific of any New England program with a long history of MLB draft picks and D1 commitments.
However, NEB is not the only giant among New England travel programs these days. Programs like the New England Ruffnecks, GBG Hawks, Antonelli Baseball, Baseball U CT, Nokona Baseball, Nor’Easters, Scorpions, Clubhouse DeMarini and LB Expos produce D1 prospects and MLB Draft prospects every year.
