BEFORE FAME

Alex was drafted by the Royals following his junior season at the University of Nebraska where he swept the collegiate baseball awards for college player of the year – the Golden Spikes Award, the Dick Howser Award, the Brooks Wallace Award and the ABCA Rawlings Player of the Year.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

On August 17, 2016, Alex surpassed John Mayberry (143) for sixth place on the Royals’ all-time home run list. He finished the season with 151 career homers, second most among Royals left-handed batters, trailing only George Brett (317). He committed just two errors in 230 total chances in 2016 and his .991 fielding percentage ranked second among major-league left fielders. In 2015, Alex was elected to his third straight American League All-Star Game. He started all 16 games of the postseason in left field for the Royals in ’15 and hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning in Game One of the World Series off Mets’ closer Jeurys Familia. Alex also drove in the go-ahead run in Game Four of the ’15 ALDS at Houston with a ground out as the eventual World Champion Royals rallied from a four-run deficit in the eighth inning.

FUN FACT

Alex provided funding for the Alex Gordon Training Complex at the University of Nebraska, which was completed in 2011.
