The Alexander baseball team is the last one left standing in Laredo as they prepare for their regional semifinal round later this week. The Bulldogs continue to climb not only in the state polls but are being recognized nationally as well. Alexander was #6 in the Texas coaches rankings but will almost assuredly move up with the number one team in the state losing. Maxpreps.com has the team at #10 in Xcellent Top 25 of the country, one of only two Texas teams to crack the top ten. Head coach Mario Garcia says it isn't one player that stands out from this years team but his depth is unmatched.
The Bulldogs will face the rattlers in that best of three series beginning Thursday night here in Laredo at 8 pm. Game two will be Friday at eight at San Antonio’s Wolff Stadium with game three if necessary Saturday at six once again in San Antonio.
