Alex Dickerson is the son of Navy veteran and retired F-14 Radar Intercept Officer Ross (Bosco) Dickerson. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the third round of the 2011, and now plays for the Bradenton (Florida) Marauders. The boy can hit the ball. Here is a video that highlights the year he has had in the pros.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7fag9khWJg[/youtube]
It’s good to see a son of a Sailor doing well as he chases the dream.
UPDATE: Alex was just named Player of the Year for the Florida State League!
