Mid-Pacific senior Alex Oley was named the Gatorade Hawaii Baseball Player of the Year on Tuesday.

Oley is the ninth MPI player to win the Gatorade honor in the 31-year history of the award. He hit .406 with 16 runs scored and was also 5-1 with a 2.35 ERA on the mound for the Owls, who won the ILH championship.

“Alex Oley exemplifies everything we hope youth players to be,” Punahou coach Keenan Sue said in a press release. “He is hard working and has a positive attitude but is a fierce competitor who rises to a challenge. He is genuinely confident, yet humble and just a plain, good player.”


Oley has signed to play at New Mexico State next season.

Noah Shackles, MPI (2015)
Kodi Medeiros, Waiakea (2014)
Trey Saito, MPI (2013)
Travis Garcia-Perreira, MPI (2012)
