Alexa Budner named NEFL Player of the Month for April

BYJess Caron

The Alliance Fastpitch proudly announces Alexa Budner (2028) from the Northeast Fastpitch League (NEFL) as Player of the Month for her remarkable play in April 2024. Alexa Budner, a versatile player for Team Pennsylvania 2010 White, excels in multiple positions—outfield, second base. Her April stats include a .632 batting average, a .650 OBP, 11 singles, 5 RBIs, and 1 stolen base. 


Alexa Budner’s softball journey begins with her proud accomplishment of changing from a right-handed batter to a slapper. She has been slapping for two seasons now, attributing her success to her slapping coach Gina Fuchs, and the continued support from her Team PA coaches, Jason White, Richele Hall, and Phil Larcinese. They all provide positive support during the growing pains of changing to slapping.


A cherished softball memory for Alexa is being chosen as the offensive MVP at the Alliance Welcome to Our Nightmare tournament. 


Her favorite player is Carsyn Snead, but outside of softball, Alexa finds joy in reading, hanging out with friends, and playing volleyball.


Currently, Alexa’s goals include continuing her softball career at the University of North Carolina and majoring in Biology. The Alliance Fastpitch commends Alexa on her well-deserved recognition as Player of the Month, acknowledging her outstanding contributions to the sport and her commitment to personal and athletic growth.


What is the Alliance Fastpitch Player Recognition Program?

The Player Recognition Program was built to recognize and spotlight our individual players in each Member League. Each month, registered Alliance Fastpitch coaches can nominate a player from their age division. League Leadership will review nominations and a monthly stats report from AthletesGoLive (AGL) to determine the League’s Player of the Month.

Following the announcement of each League’s Players of the Month, the Alliance Fastpitch will recognize a National Player of the Month. To be considered for Player of the Month, your team must score League games in AGL so your stats will be included in the League’s monthly report.
