Mandy Alvarez

Senior Instructor

Selected in the 2016 MLB draft by the New York Yankees, currently a Professional Baseball Player

Teaching:I love this game and I want to help players at all levels become the best they can be.  I am a kind hearted individual -always helping those around me; my team and friends with all aspects of the game—both physical and mental. The mental game of baseball is just as important as the physical aspects of the game—I can help improve both. I want to share my experience and passion for this game, teach the skills and give players the edge against their opponents.

I have had the opportunity to play in 27 states against the best competition in the country including Collegiate Division I baseball, elite summer teams like NECBL, Cape Cod League and the Florida Legends. I have played with great players, some already in the Pros and others working their way there.

In 2016, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University where I had the opportunity to play this game that I love. I was the OVC Player of the Year, selected 1st Team All-Conference and 5th Place in the Division I batting average across the NCAA.

In June, I was selected by the New York Yankees in the 2016 MLB Draft, this was a dream come true—and an opportunity for me to continue to play the game I love. I was the first position player and only 3rd baseman chosen by the Yankees.  During the season I was promoted to A ball within two weeks and was invited to the Yankees post season Instructional League.

My goal is to continue to work hard so that I can reach the ultimate goal which is to play Major League Baseball.
