Alex Gordon leaves behind legacy of hard work with Husker baseball

"You can't say enough for what he's done for Husker baseball," Bolt said.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Alex Gordon’s impact on baseball goes far beyond the Kansas City Royals’ organization.

Gordon, a Lincoln Southeast grad, had a legendary career at Nebraska, where current Husker head coach Will Bolt coached him as a grad assistant.

“You can’t say enough for what he’s done for Husker baseball,” Bolt said.

Hear Bolt’s full comments on Gordon at the video link above. Gordon played his final baseball game this season, announcing his retirement after a 14-year MLB career. He earned seven Gold Gloves, made three All-Star games and won a World Series in 2015.

Other notes:

  • Bolt loves the young talent the Huskers have brought in this season. He says it’s been a much more competitive fall camp because of it, “It’s been fun to see the depth of what we hoped we’d have. Right now it looks believable.”
  • Freshman Max Anderson has played all over the diamond for the Big Red so far.
  • Spencer Schwellenbach looks “solid” on the mound
  • Senior Texas A&M transfer Logan Foster appears to be a clear leader in the clubhouse.
