Justin Vicory Mississippi Clarion Ledger Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Jul 23, 2018 Jackson residents love a good drink. Taking away that right has proven to be foolhardy over the years. That's simply a matter of history, a new book says. "Hidden History of Jackson," co-authored by Josh Foreman and Ryan Starrett and published by Arcadia Publishing and The History Press, gives a chronological look at some of Jackson's less well- known history from the 1700s to the 1950s. In one of its chapters, the authors delve into Jacksonians' clash with prohibitionists and examines how the end of legal alcohol simply meant the beginning of illegal alcohol in the capital city. In 1886, the state of Mississippi allowed counties to vote on whether to be wet or dry. Hinds County held a referendum that same year and voters chose to adopt prohibition. Three years later, voters overturned prohibition, but it wouldn't last, as efforts to ban alcohol grew across the nation. By … [Read more...] about Jackson residents love their alcohol. Taking away that right has been foolhardy over the years.

The Red Sox are among the clubs considering signing free-agent outfielder Austin Jackson, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman. The Giants are also involved. Jackson, 31, signed a two-year deal with San Francisco before the season but struggled and was traded to the Rangers in a salary relief move last month. Texas immediately released Jackson, sending him back to the open market despite taking on the remainder of his salary through 2019. Jackson would provide Boston with some outfield depth behind Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Andrew Benintendi and J.D. Martinez, allowing Brock Holt and Steve Pearce to focus on their infield duties. If the Giants signed him, they'd get him back while having Texas pay his salary in a creative move. Jackson hit .242/.309/.295 in 59 games for the Giants this year, a disappointing result after he OPS'd .869 in 89 games for the Indians a year ago. He's owed about $1 million for the rest of this year and $3 million next season, though Texas will pay the … [Read more...] about Boston Red Sox considering Austin Jackson, per report
Jake Lourim Louisville Courier Journal Published 8:51 p.m. UTC Jul 22, 2018 OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Lamar Jackson is clearly still the Baltimore Ravens’ backup quarterback, which may be disappointing to some. But early in their training camp, the Ravens are finding ways to involve their first-round rookie in the offense elsewhere, and that could be exciting for many. In the Ravens’ third full team practice of the season Sunday at the team’s Owings Mills facility, Jackson did the full workout behind starter Joe Flacco but also lined up as a slot receiver at least twice.

Lamar Jackson got at least one vote for president in 2016 From the slot, Jackson motioned to the right before the snap, took a handoff or pitch from Flacco, cut back to the left and threw downfield. He completed passes both times. Both plays elicited the loudest cheers of the day from fans in attendance. “I love the Baltimore fans,” Jackson said after … [Read more...] about In Baltimore, the Ravens are using Lamar Jackson in unique ways
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The pundits and coaches honing in on Lamar Jackson's every move demand that the Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback love his job, that he obsess over every detail of his work. That's life as an NFL quarterback. But Jackson will also tell you that life as an NFL rookie is grueling. While most Ravens players were resting their bodies in February, Jackson was training each day for the combine; he then jetted across the country to meet with teams during the pre-draft process in April, when veterans began easing into an offseason workout program. In many ways, a football player's first professional season can be his most demanding. So when Jackson had a chance to break from the Ravens in late June and early July, he didn't spend every waking moment on a football field or with his nose stuffed into a playbook. "I was trying to relax," Jackson said of his time off. "We've been grinding a lot these past couple months." If the goal was to recharge before training camp, it … [Read more...] about Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson says he’s growing through grind of rookie season
