Adan Alvarado is a pitcher for the Raskulls team which won the 16U Baseball Showcase World Series Championship on Jun. 30 in Mesa, Arizona. Despite being just 14-years-old, Alvarado pitched five innings of one-run ball in the championship game and was able to pick up the win for his team.
“I just treat everybody like I’m just one of them,” Alvarado said on his age difference.
Alvarado was not just great on the mound in the game. He also had an RBI-single which plated one of the three runs the Raskulls needed to complete the 3-2 victory.
Alvarado is a sophomore at Phoenix Christian High School where he helped lead the Cougars to the 2A quarterfinals in 2019. Outside of baseball, Alvarado enjoys hanging out with his family. His goal after high school is to play college baseball. He has been invited to the 16U all-star game.
