Wiki

Edwin Jackson (born September 9, 1983, in Neu-Ulm, Bavaria, West Germany) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball.

Jackson's father, Edwin Jackson, Sr., a military cook, was stationed in Germany at the time of his birth. Jackson is one of 27 major league players who were born in Germany. He spent the first eight years of his life in Germany until spending the rest of his youth in Columbus, Georgia. Jackson attended Shaw High School in Columbus, Georgia from 1997–2001. While attending Shaw High School, Jackson played outfield for the Raider baseball team. His Senior year, Jackson helped lead the Raiders baseball team to the 2001 GHSA AAAA State Championship title over Columbus High School in Columbus, Georgia.

Jackson was drafted by the Dodgers in the 6th round of the 2001 MLB entry draft out of Shaw High School in Columbus. He was originally drafted as an outfielder but was quickly converted into a pitcher by the Dodgers. There was a time when Jackson was regarded as one of the premiere pitching prospects in baseball (after posting sub-4.00 ERAs in AA and the majors at age 19 in 2003), but poor showings in AAA and MLB after that season ended his status as a "can't-miss" prospect. He made his major league debut on September 9, 2003, his 20th birthday. In that game, he pitched 6 innings, giving up just 1 run and out-pitched Cy Young Award winner Randy Johnson to earn his first career major league victory.
