He may only be 22 years old, but Greg Alexander has already established himself as an elite More Talent Baseball League player.

Champagne was flowing freely in the Arizona Diamondbacks clubhouse as the team celebrated a National League wild card berth.

"We didn't win the division like we wanted to, but I'm still smiling," said starting pitcher Aaron Blair. "In the end, we've still got a chance to win the World Series and that's the important thing."

The club has a 89-73 record and will be seeking the 2nd More Talent Baseball League championship in team history.
