Alec Bohm, who was born on August 3, 1996, in Omaha, Nebraska, is the son of Dan and Lisa Bohm. As his father also had very nice hair, Alec inherited his father’s good facial hair and skinny hair. Bohm played baseball for the Roncalli Catholic baseball club in Omaha during his high school years.
Moreover, being a handsome hunk at school he also had a batting average of.533 and.526, respectively, in his final two seasons, and the Omaha World-Herald named him an All-Nebraska player for each of those seasons.
Bohm won the Connie Mack World Series Home Run Derby and tied for fourth at the Triple-A Home Run Derby in Werner Park in 2015, the summer following his senior year of high school.
No Major League Baseball (MLB) team chose Bohm in the 2015 MLB Draft, even though the Perfect Game baseball scouting agency rated him as the best player in Nebraska. Bohm’s final year of high school saw him go through a growth spurt, which put him “at that awkward stage” when baseball scouts arrived to look at him, in the words of his high school coach Jake Hoover.
Bohm wanted to attend college in Nebraska, but the Nebraska Cornhuskers declined to recruit him. Instead, he opted to accept a scholarship offer from the Wichita State Shockers to play college baseball.
