Saturday was a special day in Jackson. A baseball game and a 5K race were held to honor Michael D. Johnson. The Murrah great won a state title in hoops and signed to play college baseball before his life was cut short in 2005.
The Mustangs played Jim Hill in summer ball action, the Tigers winning the matchup 4-3.
A great day at the 8th annual 5K #WalkForMike & the 2nd MDJ Baseball Classic! Congrats to our four scholarship winners and Jim Hill Tigers, who won 4-3 over Murrah.— Jon Wiener (@jonwienershow) June 2, 2018
