Career[edit]

Jake Alu started playing baseball when he was a boy around 7 years old. He was motivated from watching his favorite player on TV. He always wanted to be one of those guys who were on the field. When he was 15, he went to Princeton Day School for high school.[3] There he played baseball as long as he can remember as it was his favorite. He did play basketball and soccer as well.

He realized that he was best at baseball and just played that after his sophomore year of high school so he can play year round. He committed to Boston College when he was sophomore. He played all four seasons there and led the team hitting for 2 of the seasons.[4]

At the same time he became player of Washington Nationals minor league and in the same period that is at the age of 15 Made the United States national baseball team Tryouts.[5] Alu has always been one of the height-challenged kids on the block. When he got to college, it was the time he realized that if he worked really hard he can become a well known baseball player.

He played baseball at Boston College and continued himself in baseball.[6] In 2015 he was recognized as the Princeton Packet Baseball Player of the Year.[7] It was most wonderful point of his life.In 2016 he played in 10 games.[8]

He can play second, short and third, right field and left field. In 2019 Alu was assigned to the Auburn Doubledays, a short-season Rookie League(Minor League Baseball) team in the New York–Penn League.[12] As luck would have it, Alu joined Peroni, his former teammate at Newton Little League and Nottingham Babe Ruth.[13] After this he was taken in the 23rd round by the Washington Nationals[14]
