From Texas To Detroit

Matthew Stafford and Austin Jackson are the present and future of Detroit sports, but they also knew each other as youngsters in Denton, Texas.

Here's what it was like to play against a teenaged Jackson:

"(Jackson) was awesome. He was a freak. He put a couple third basemen in the hospital. He was a dead pull hitter, just like he is now, but he was such a threat to bunt, because he was so fast, that people would play in on him and he'd rip it down third with a metal bat."

I always forget that every single one of these guys used to play with metal bats. Cripes.
