About

MLB outfielder who began his career with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2005 but a bout of Valley Fever cut his career short.

Before Fame

He sailed through the Diamondbacks' farm system, and swung a hot bat at the start of their 2008 season, almost hitting for the cycle in April.

Trivia

In May, 2009, he contracted Valley Fever, which left him 35 pounds lighter. He went on to play for the A's, Red Sox and Rangers for brief stints after that, but he was never the same.

Family Life

His father John M. Jackson became an actor.

Associated With

In an April 18, 2008 game, he was a double away from hitting for the cycle, against pitcher Greg Maddux.
