A pair of Swift Current baseball players are in Toronto for the annual T12 prospects tournament at Rogers Centre.

Pitcher Jackson Fraser and infielder Brody Alexandre are on the regional Prarie Purple team, competing against the best Canadian amateur prospects from September 13-17.

Alexandre has had a successful summer baseball season. Playing for the Midget AAA 57's, he racked up a lofty .413 average and 31 RBI - good for fifth and fourth in the SPBL, respectively.

He also played for Team Sask at the U15 Ray Carter Cup as an overager, winning silver in the process, and at the U17 Canada Cup as one of the youngest on the squad.

Alexandre currently lives in Saskatoon, where he's attending the Saskatchewan Baseball Academy for the winter months, before resuming play with the Midget AAA 57's in the spring.

Meanwhile, the towering 6-foot-7 Fraser is into his second T12 showing. The righty has an 89 MPH fastball, and is said to have three off-speed pitches - a good repertoire to showcase in front of a pile of scouts in Toronto.

Fraser currently logs time with the Okotoks Dawgs Academy in Alberta, and is now into his second season with the Alberta club.

Alexandre, Fraser, and Prairie Purple play twice today on Day 1. They take on Atlantic Maroon this afternoon, and Quebec Blue tonight.
