Royals Farm Report Guru, Baseball Insider, Teacher & Coach Alex Duvall
As a tall, lanky 8 yr. old, Alex Duvall had a bright future ahead in baseball, even before people should talk about futures in baseball. His dad coached him, and he was good at his craft. As a pitcher, he overpowered young hitters, a theme that would continue throughout youth baseball, high school, and into college.
Somewhere along the way, a nasty elbow injury attempted to sideline him, but Duvall fought hard like he always has. Armed with determination and a work ethic taught to him by his once principal mother and highly successful businessman father, he worked through the injury and pitched again. He would eventually hang up the spikes, but a bulldozer armed with a flame thrower couldn’t take him out of the game he loves.
Now a teacher and coach, Alex Duvall is a professional baseball insider and contributor to “Royals Farm Report”, a site that is everything Royals with a concentration on the future Kauffman stadium elite. Always an excellent student in the classroom, Big Al uses his experiences on the diamond, his advanced intellect in analytics and a passionate love for the game to write for the team he loves….and he’s a highly talented writer as well! If you’re a Royals fan, a baseball junkie, a prospect watcher or a combination of all 3, listen in to my conversation with Alex as he’s shows us all a thing or two about the greatest game ever invented-especially while wearing Royal Blue!!
