Hackworth set Jackson High School’s single-season RBI record with 37 in ‘23

O’FALLON, Mo. – The O’Fallon Hoots, proud members of the Prospect League, announced the signing of right-handed outfielder Baden Hackworth for the 2024 summer season. Hackworth comes to O’Fallon as a freshman from St. Louis University (SLU). 

The 6-foot-0, 185-pound outfielder played in nine games for the 2023 St. Louis Gamers in the CarShield Collegiate League (CCL), recording a .250 BA, .455 OBP, and .458 SLG in 24 at-bats. Hackworth attended Jackson High School, where, in his senior season, he both set the team’s single-season RBI record (37), launched eight home runs, and had 51 runs batted in, ultimately helping the Indians reach their first final four in program history. The Jackson, Missouri-native was selected to the 2023 Missouri High School Baseball Coaches Association (MHSBCA) Class 6 All State Team, being named first team as a catcher. The SLU-commit echoed his success during his junior season, garnering Southeastern Missouri (SEMO) All-Conference and Class 6 District 1 All-District honors after recording a .275 BA with four home runs, 19 hits, 19 runs batted in, and 21 stolen bases. The freshman will make his debut for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I SLU Bilkins this upcoming spring season.
