Biographical Information[edit]

Adam Sorgi played briefly in the minor leagues and has appeared for the Swedish national team (he is Swedish-American).

Sorgi played in the 1997 Little League World Series; in the championship game, he relieved Gavin Fabian with two on, no outs and a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the last inning but served up a 3-run homer to Gabriel Alvarez then walked Javier De Isla, who would score the winning run as Sorgi took the loss. In 2002, he became his high school team's captain and was named a South State All-Star by the California Baseball Coaches' Association. In 2003, he hit .438 with 10 homers and was named his league's MVP. He was picked by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 49th round of the 2003 amateur draft but opted for college, attending Stanford University.

In 2004, he hit .214/.304/.229 as a college freshman, sharing shortstop duties early in the year for a traditional powerhouse program. That summer, he batted .162/.162/.297 for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod League. In 2005, Sorgi batted .322/.395/.481 with 52 runs in 59 games for Stanford. As the club's everyday third baseman, he led the team in average, hits (77), triples (3) and runs (tied). He got honorable mention on the All-Pacific-10 Conference team.

Sorgi missed 2006 due to a right shoulder injury but returned in 2007 to hit .375/.456/.451. He moved to second base that season. He was 6th in the Pac-10 in average and slugging, leading the Cardinal in both categories. He made the All-Conference team as a utility infielder.

The Phillies again picked Sorgi, this time in the 21st round of the 2007 amateur draft. He hit .198/.284/.231 in 35 games for the Williamsport Crosscutters as a utility infielder.

In the 2007 European Championship, Sorgi hit .313/.389/.375 as Sweden's leadoff hitter and starting second baseman. In 2009, Adam went to play in the Swedish Elitserien.
