In the Mix: Catching up with the All Star SS Jackson Mix

July 23, 2021

He’s got the confidence. He’s got the swagger. He’s got the hair flow. He is Jackson Mix. The reliable leadoff man for the Scoutz USA Pirates this summer at the CLPB, has made a cool splash onto the scene that not many people saw coming. Being from Gray, Georgia, as well as playing baseball collegiately at Georgia Southwestern, Mix has really enjoyed his time down here who have laid everything on the line for the team and it is working as they continue to be in the late ends of a playoff push (as of 7/21/2021 Pirates are 2.5 games back of the 2nd seed with 4 games left). At Georgia Southwestern, as a redshirt sophomore Mix is excited to see what he can bring to the lineup, if it is anything like the CLPB, Georgia Southwestern is in for an entertaining season. Mix models his game by taking Bo Bichette’s swagger and Fernando Tatis Jr.’s athleticism to be remembered as someone who always goes all out on the field. Mix’s goal at the end of the CLPB is to keep his speed while adding power to his game, as he is notorious on the base paths! Expect Mix to be playing a long time on the baseball field, and as soon as it is time to hang up the cleats, he will put on the coaching gear and try to develop players into becoming even better than he was. On an off day, Jackson loves to fish at Lake Sinclair or hunt in the woods with his dad and his brother, according to what the season is!
