Biographical Information[edit]

Third baseman Alec Bohm was the third overall pick of the 2018 amateur draft, out of Wichita State University. Born in Lincoln, NE, he grew up and attended high school in Omaha, NE. With a frame more commonly found on a first baseman than a third baseman, he hit for both average and power in college, as well as drawing a lot of walks. He hit .339 with 14 doubles and 16 homers in 57 games as a junior in 2018. His selection was not a surprise, as he was considered one of the top college hitters in the draft and was widely linked to the Philadelphia Phillies, who selected him. He signed with the Phillies on June 11th, agreeing to a signing bonus of $5.85 million.

Bohm started off his pro career slowly at first, but got off to a blazing start to the 2019 season. He slashed .367/.441/.595 in 22 games with the Lakewood BlueClaws, to earn a quick promotion to the High-A Clearwater Threshers. That level he devoured too, earning him Florida State League Mid-Season All Star honors and his second promotion before the end of June. Alec then settled in for the rest of the season with the Reading Fightin Phils, where his slash totals were much more tame, (.269/.344/.500) but his power spiked as he tripled his career homer total from 7 to 21 despite appearing in just 63 games with Reading. During that season he was also selected to the 2019 Futures Game, and thereafter he was named to the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game and the USA's roster for the 2019 WBSC Premier12 Tournament.
