Coach Corbin Quote: Alex has mature hitting skills and movements which will certainly give him an opportunity to get on the field at some point this year. Where I think he has improved the most is his defensive abilities. He is a future third or first baseman in our program and should be an offensive presence as well.
Academics - Brewer is undecided on a major.
Personal - Alexander James Brewer... Born 12/9/97 in Nashville, Tenn.... Son of Lea Ann and Steve Brewer... Has one older brother, Zack, who pitches at Martin Methodist in Pulaski, Tenn.... Nickname is Brew... Favorites include: Josh Donaldson (player), Toronto Blue Jays (team), Step Brothers, Creed, Cinderella Man, Forrest Gump (movies), Prison Break, Breaking Bad (TV shows), Mark Wahlberg (actor), mac and cheese (meal), Mike Stud (musician), honey buns (late night snack)... Says he’d be an athletic trainer if not an athlete... Names Mark Wahlberg as the actor to play him in a movie... Lists his oddest talent as solving a Rubik’s Cube in 90 seconds or less... Uses independent as the one word to describe himself... Roommates with Reid Schaller... Hitting a walk-off home run as a sophomore to send his team to state tournament is his most memorable athletic moment... Chose Vanderbilt because it “has been my dream school since I was a freshman in high school. The environment we play in is one of the best in the country.”
