The College of New Jersey better start budgeting for some extra softballs in its softball program.
What is pitched Alexa Blue’s way doesn’t necessarily remain in the field of play.
The Jersey Outlaws Gold-DB first baseman, and one of the premier home run hitters in the state, will begin slugging for TCNJ in the fall of 2020, having verbally committed to join the standout New Jersey Athletic Conference program. The rising senior at Northern Burlington High School is an excellent student and also plays for the varsity basketball and volleyball teams.
The 6-foot-plus Blue is an intimidating sight to opposing pitchers, often launching their best offerings with towering shots over the outfield fence. She was named Northern Burlington’s offensive player of the year as a freshman in 2017 and has racked up one accolade after another, helping the Greyhounds capture BCSL Liberty Division titles in each of her three seasons.
Blue, part of the Outlaws’ original nucleus, will play alongside longtime teammate Julia Mayernik at TCNJ, which has won two straight regular-season conference titles and played in the last two NCAA Division III tournaments.
