Orioles INF Jackson Holliday to wear dad’s No. 7

jackson holliday

Baltimore Orioles infielder Jackson Holliday will wear his father’s jersey No. 7 when he makes his much-anticipated major league debut.

Baseball’s No. 1-ranked prospect is the son of seven-time All-Star outfielder Matt Holliday, who wore the number during his prime with the St. Louis Cardinals after wearing No. 5 with the Colorado Rockies.

Jackson Holliday, 20, joined the Orioles for Wednesday’s game against the Red Sox at Boston’s Fenway Park after hitting .333 with two homers and nine RBIs in 10 games at Triple-A Norfolk.

He was officially called up to the majors on Wednesday morning, with infielder/outfielder Tony Kemp designated for assignment to clear room on the 26-man roster.

Jackson Holliday was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 MLB Draft out of Stillwater (Okla.) High School. Playing shortstop and second base, he has batted .321 with 15 homers, 93 RBIs and 29 stolen bases in 155 games in the minors since 2022.

Matt Holliday played 1,903 games in his career and hit 316 home runs with 1,220 RBIs in 15 seasons with four teams from 2004-18. He won the 2007 National League batting title (.340) with the Rockies and the 2011 World Series with the Cardinals.
