Jackson Residents are Excited to See Baseball Back in the City

Jackson, TN. (WNBJ)-


The new Prospect League Team is set to start playing right here in this stadium next year, but first they need a team name. Hub City residents stated, “jackiseonians,” “I don’t know what to name them,” and “The innovators.”


Jackson residents are taking a swing at the new prospect league team name. Play Ball Jackson is allowing residents to name the team, by entering their “Name Your Team” contest. Reggi’s Hickory Pit BBQ owner Eugene Pickett says he’s excited to see baseball back in the city. Eugene Pickett (Reggi’s Hickory Pit BBQ) informed us, “I love the thought of having a professional team here in the city, and… and in this area we need that.”


After 3 years of lockdown and safety protocols due to covid-19, residents are excited to have some new entertainment in the community. Randy Yarbrough (Madison County Resident) stated, “it’ll be great. It’s somewhere for people to go.”


Residents are encouraged to enter their name recommendations to playballjackson.com. Those who enter have a shot at winning some big prizes like season tickets, cash and more.
