Ballard is a talented athlete coming out of the Bob Jones High School baseball program and is Prep Baseball Report’s 28th ranked RHP in the state. His 2020 season was impeccable, as he was named Bob Jones’ Most Outstanding Pitcher.
He also managed to strike out 30 batters that season and Ballard shared with Lakepoint’s Kyra Vandiver, that his favorite thing about pitching was the strikeouts themselves.
