THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING JACKSON HOLLIDAY
Jackson Holliday was selected first overall in the 2022 MLB Draft by the Baltimore Orioles, coming right out of Stillwater (Oklahoma) High School. He finished his senior year batting .685 with 17 home runs, 79 RBIs and 30 stolen bases over 40 games. He was named Oklahoma’s Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year and was also awarded an American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings Gold Glove.
Jackson’s father is Matt Holliday, the eight-time MLB All-Star with the Colorado Rockies and St. Louis Cardinals who was recently named the Cardinals bench coach.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Jackson Holliday about his year in 2022 and what it was like to go from high school to being drafted and playing pro baseball in the span of a few weeks. We also hear about Jackson’s faith and the lessons he’s learned about following Christ from his parents, Matt and Leslee.
