Alexis Johnson (INF/OF): Power Hitting Division I Utility Player out of California
Alexis Johnson is a power-hitting utility player out of Division I Alabama State University. She grew up in Sacramento, California where she played for a number of different travel teams before heading to Sierra Junior College. In her two seasons at Sierra, Alexis hit an incredible 16 homeruns with over 70 RBI’s. Her stellar performance got her attention from some division one clubs, and she ultimately committed to Alabama State University where she received a scholarship. At ASU, Alexis continued her success batting .318 with 9 homeruns, 29 extra base hits, and 43 RBI’s. She’s now looking to find a club overseas where she can continue playing.
Based on Alexis’ performance in college, there is no denying that she would continue her offensive production overseas. She describes herself as a power hitter with average speed and a strong arm. It’s been her dream since she was a little girl to play the game she loves while getting to travel and play with girls all over the world. She enjoys coaching and would be open to coaching a youth team alongside of playing. She would be a great addition to any club overseas seeking a power hitter who can play infield or outfield.

I had the pleasure of coaching Alexis Johnson for 2 years. She is one of those rare athlete that plays with passion and inspires those around her. She started for me for 2 years and was the reason we won a State Championship. She struggles during the tournament at the plate. But, during the championship game we were down by 2 in the 6th with bases loaded and Alexis hit a grand slam. What impressed me about that situation is that she never gave up. She had been struggling at the plate for 3 games but you would have never known that.
I had Alexis come back to Sierra College a few weeks ago and talk to my current team. She has that personality and drive I wanted my players to see.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Alexis Johnson to your program.
Alexis will be available to head overseas once she graduates on May 20th. She’s looking for a club who is willing to cover flights, accommodations, and offer a small salary to cover living expenses.
