The dynamic between the Werth father-son duo is incredibly special. From an early age, Jackson Werth grew up developing a love for the sport of baseball while also watching his father, Jayson Werth, compete on TV. When Jackson was old enough, he was not only able to cheer on his father from his living room, but he actually spent time in the dugout with his father and his teammates and even caught ground balls while some of the game's greatest stars were at batting practice.
Who is Jayson Werth exactly? He's an MLB All-Star and World Series Champion who competed professionally for the Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Dodgers, Philadelphia Phillies, and Washington Nationals. Werth won the World Series with the Phillies in 2008, was named to the NL All-Star team in 2009, and then was named to the Nationals' Ring of Honor in 2018. Perhaps another one of his greatest accomplishments, however, is guiding his son, a current IMG Academy baseball student-athlete, throughout his early career and providing him with an opportunity to shape his own legacy.
