95 Grand 5.2 starting problem

hey guys hope you can help. i have a 95 grand cherokee with a 5.2L under the hood. i ran into a starting issue with at work. it started but the starter stayed engaged so i turned it off and on and nothing. it has done this twice before but started right up the second time i turn it over. now i have power from the battery to the starter. i tried to start in neutral but nothing. finally i put the ignition into the run possession and jumped the solenoid terminals and it started right up with no problems. i have no clue as to what to check or fix. the relay under the hood seems to be working for the starter relay. any help will be appreciated.

Sounds like corroded battery terminals and/or a bad battery.
