Alex Jackson loudly introduced himself to the larger baseball world in 2010, starting for Rancho Bernardo High School (a.k.a. “The Factory), one of the most storied high school programs in the country, as a freshman. He hit .376-5-27 with 15 doubles as a 15 year old in the spring of 2011, then topped that by hitting .400-17-36 as a sophomore in 2012.

He stole the show as an underclassman at the 2012 Area Code Games, going 6-for-7 with five extra base hits, the final one a laser triple off the center field fence that hit the cement wall at Blair Field and rebounded half way back to the infield. Yes, the balls were juiced at that event, but Jackson hit the ball as hard as is humanly possible for 16 year old just about every time up.
