Help me try and help my 18 year old son and G2

My 18 year old son, a baseball player, (serious and very good), lean, and intelligent, drinks G2, (one of those Gatorade products). He will drink this, (as do many other players), before, during, between games and practice.
I believe that the high fructose corn syrup is not good for him. Personally, the HFCS gives the drink a lousy taste.
Does anyone know of a drink providing energy, hydration, that might be a good substitute?
Mind you, G2 has Vit C, Vit E, Niacin, B6, Pantothenic Acid.
Also, the HFCS imparts a seemingly desirable sweetness, and a little flavor and good calories are desirable.
Gatorade was originally marketed to be a source of electrolyte energy drink, was it not? Perhaps there exists an organic, non HFCS energy drink?
