High School Baseball Factory Alumnus Participates in Triple-A HR Derby
In mid-May, Chicago White Sox Triple-A affiliate Charlotte Knights held a High School Home Run Derby Preliminary Tournament, in which the two best home run hitters would compete in the Triple-A Home Run Derby.
The Triple-A Home Run Derby, held Monday, July 11, at BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte, featured six Triple-A sluggers and the two high school hitters.
One of the high schoolers, Trent Alley, is a Baseball Factory alumnus and has attended three Baseball Factory events. Alley smacked two home runs in his only round of competition at the Triple-A Home Run Derby.
Alley recently graduated from Charlotte Country Day School and will attend Furman University and play baseball in the fall.
The 6’4”, 200-pound 18-year-old is a third baseman and a right-handed pitcher.
Baseball Factory coaches first saw Alley at a 2013 National Tryout in Gaffney, South Carolina. Alley was then selected to play in the 2014 Under Armour Preseason All-America Tournament. Alley also attended another National Tryout in Gaffney, South Carolina, the following year.
