Alexander Fernandez (born August 13, 1969 in Miami Beach, Florida) is a Cuban American former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who pitched for the Chicago White Sox (1990-96) and Florida Marlins (1997, 1999-2000). Fernandez retired in 2001, citing shoulder problems that were incurred in the 1997 postseason,[1] where the Florida Marlins won their first World Series.

In 1990, Fernandez won the Dick Howser Trophy for National College Baseball player of the year while pitching at Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC). He previously played at the University of Miami before transferring to MDCC to be eligible to enter the Baseball Major League Draft.

In Little League Baseball, Alex played for the Hialeah Athletic Association (HAA) where he fine-tuned his pitching skills. Alex's father was his team's coach.

Going on a different path, Alex is doing radio and becoming active in politics in his hometown of Miami Beach, where he campaigned and helped elect its mayor. He is now the director of baseball operations at Archbishop McCarthy High School in Southwest Ranches, Florida.

Alex Fernandez was inducted into the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame on September 13, 2008. The induction took place during a pregame ceremony before a Florida Marlins vs Washington Nationals game at Dolphin Stadium, Miami, Florida.
