06/22/2012 - Maryland Select Training & Competition Jackson is a 2017 graduate who catches and also pitches. Behind the plate, Jackson has firm and sure hands, a wide setup, and he gives a good target. He centers the ball when blocking and he has a quick release. Would like to see him work on his footwork behind the plate to develop as a very good overall catcher. At the plate, he has an athletic setup and takes a short stride. He has average bat speed for his age and hit hard line drives throughout the camp. His bat path is level, but needs to work on his timing at the plate. On the mound, Jackson throws a fastball and changeup. His fastball has a natural cut action and he throws strikes with this pitch. He gets to a good balance point and has a good mound presence. Would like to see him work on his finish and create more extension through the pitch. Jackson is an athletic baseball player with a good idea anywhere in the field. He will continue to improve his game and compete at a high level with more experience.
