First look at minor league baseball, Orioles No. 1 pick Jackson Holliday adjusts to pro life | Sports


SALISBURY, Md. — Twenty-three years ago, when Matt Holliday was 19, the future All-Star outfielder found himself at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, playing for the Asheville Tourists. It was early in Holliday’s career, and he scored that series against the Delmarva Shorebirds with a home run.

Now there’s another Holliday starting his career at Perdue Stadium, with Orioles prospect Jackson Holliday making his Low-A Delmarva debut on Thursday. Holliday is a year younger than his father at this point, making the jump from the Florida Complex League to an affiliate after Baltimore selected him with the first overall pick in the 2022 Major League Baseball Draft.
