How Crawford influenced No. 1 pick Holliday in unique way originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
It wasn’t Jackson Holliday's luscious locks that helped him become the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 MLB Draft on Sunday, but there’s certainly still a great story behind his mane.
“I kinda just started growing it out after my freshman year,” Jackson told ESPN. “I really liked Brandon Crawford's … hopefully he sees this.”
The Crawford household was definitely aware of Jackson's comments and Jalynne Crawford, Brandon's wife, even responded.
On the first day of the 2022 MLB Draft, the Baltimore Orioles selected the 18-year-old shortstop as the No. 1 overall pick.
It turns out Jackson's influences go beyond his father's.
