Jackson Bridges knew exactly what he wanted to do with his baseball future as early as the spring. It was only a matter of time before Bridges officially put it in ink.
Bridges, a 6′ 1″ 194 lb. RHP with a 2.56 ERA, signed his LOI with Meridian Community College baseball Tuesday morning. In 2015-2016, he saw action in 12 games, pitched 60 innings, walked 15, struck out 51, and had a record of 5-3 with one save.
“The experience Coach (Justin) Reed has given me has helped prepare me to pitch consistently at the next level,” said the 2016 1st Team All-Division pitcher.
The Golden Wave standout helped Tupelo (20-11) go 9-0 in division as well as a trip to the 6A MHSAA Quarterfinals last season.
Meridian CC, who competes in the MACJC, finished 39-12 and rose as high as seventh in the nation last spring.
“Meridian has a long history of winning,” said Bridges, “I look forward to being a big part of it.”
