Zach Jarrett making a name in baseball

The last name Jarrett is well known in the sports of NASCAR, but Zach Jarrett is hoping to make it known in another sport.

Zach is the son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett, but Zach never really had a great love for racing.  His passion was baseball and he is pretty good at it.

The former Hickory High star and Charlotte 49er was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in last year's MLB Draft and Zach is now in his first year in single A ball with the Delmarva Shorebirds.

So far this season, he is hitting .309 with 10 homerun and 47 RBI.

2 weeks ago, he played in the South Atlantic League All Star Game.  Not too bad for a guy who was drafted in the 28th round.
