Augusta, GA (WJBF) -- Baseball fans in Augusta will have a former local star to cheer for this summer. North Augusta's Jacob Smith is a member of the GreenJackets pitching staff.

The former groundskeeper for the GreenJackets at Lake Olmstead Stadium grew up a Jackets fan and is very excited to be joining the club. Smith was home schooled before attending Campbell. He was drafted in the 48th round in 2011.

The GreenJackets season and home opener is Thursday night at 7:00.
