At the University of Nebraska, Alex Gordon was considered by all of the experts not just to be the best Cornhusker on the diamond but the best baseball player in all of the NCAA.  It was certainly no surprise that the Kansas City Royals would make the versatile player the second overall pick in the 2005 Amateur Draft.

A three time All-Star, Alex Gordon led the American League in Doubles in 2012 and has had a pair of 20 Home Run seasons, and another four where he exceeded 15.  Gordon has not always had the best Batting Average, but he did bat .303 in 2011.  Realistically it was Gordon’s defense that has given him his greatest value to Kansas City.

Gordon played multiple positions in the field for KC, but it was at Leftfield where he has truly shone.  To date he has captured seven Gold Gloves, a Platinum Glove and three Wilson Defensive Awards.

As of this writing, Gordon is the highest ranked active Royal, and is the heart of the organization.
