Five times Alex Gordon melted our hearts

The most handsome left fielder in baseball

Alex Gordon turns 33 today.

Here are five times he made us blush.

Alex makes catch, despite a chair getting in his way

Since moving to the outfield full-time in 2011, the left field chainlink fence at The K has somehow survived multiple run-ins with Alex. This chair had yet to see Alex and still somehow survived.

Props to the chair.

Alex Gordon showed some signs of life after spending much of 2010 in Triple-A Omaha.

He hit .263/.327/.424 with four home runs from July 30-August 31.

He wound up being pretty good in 2011.
