Alabama Commit Brings Big Numbers to Waynesboro

 

Waynesboro, Virginia
Lawson State Community College standout and Alabama commit, Jackson Tate, will be playing for the Gens this summer. Coach Zac Cole had very high praise for Jackson, calling him “one of the very best players in Alabama junior college baseball and all the coaches and scouts we spoke to raved about this kid and the way he plays the game.” Waynesboro is lucky to have him and should look for Jackson to provide a lot of excitement this summer.

Jackson Tate – Outfielder

Jackson is the Jackie Ceman and Robert Tate. The sophomore is from Montgomery, Alabama and just finished up at Lawson State, which is located in Birmingham and Bessemer, Alabama. Though Jackson grew up a fan of Auburn athletics, he decided to commit to the University of Alabama. As we mentioned above, one of the top JUCO players in the state had impressive numbers this past season. In 55 games played, Jackson recorded a .377 batting average with 14 home runs, 41 RBI, 61 runs scored, and 26 stolen bases. Defensively, he had a clean record last season with Lawson. He had two assists, 119 putouts, and zero errors. Jackson brings a 5-tool game to Waynesboro this summer. Jackson has already impressed at the Meet the Generals Night with his batting practice he put forth as well as his manners off the field. We’re excited to see Jackson play this summer. Welcome to Waynesboro, Jackson Tate!
