Reese Alexiades named MVP along with 2 more former Florida Minor League Camp Players named to 2023 Pioneer League All Star team

Congratulations to Reese Alexiades(.326-29-90 & 29 sb) to being named 2023 Pioneer League MVP. Reese had this to say about the Florida Minor League Camp: ” In Terms of improving your 5 tools and knowledge as a ball player, there is no better environment to do so than the Florida minor League Camp. As an outfielder, my defense, arm strength, base stealing, overall base running noticeably improved immediately due to the techniques and experiences from Nick Belmonte. The knowledge that each and every instructor provide on a daily basis, is priceless!

We also want to congratulate Rocky Mountain Vibes  3b Dusty Stroop(.342-20-108) and of/1b Jacob Barfield(.357-22-98) for making the All Star team as well for their outstanding season.
