Bio: Reed, a Boise, Idaho, native, will join him in Yakima this summer, after a solid first year at Seattle University. “Jackson’s a freak athlete, very toolsy, a big bat that can also run well,” says Pippins head coach Kyle Krustangel. “Definitely an offensive threat in the lineup.” Reed has 12 hits in 42 at-bats this year for the Redhawks, with half of those going for extra bases and 3 going for home runs.
The four-time letterwinner at Capital High School was All-State in both football and baseball, and helped his team to the state finals as a sophomore. “He’s a guy that can change the game with his at-bats,” says Krustangel.
