Reggie Jackson earned the nickname Mr. October for his World Series heroics with both the A's and Yankees. In 27 Fall Classic games, he amassed 10 home runs - including four in consecutive at-bats - 24 RBI and a .357 batting average. As one of the game's premier power hitters, he blasted 563 career round-trippers. A terrific player in the clutch and an intimidating cleanup hitter, Jackson compiled a lifetime slugging percentage of .490 and earned American League MVP honors in 1973.


“I must admit, when Reggie hit his third home run (1977 World Series) and I was sure nobody was looking, I applauded in my glove.”
—  Steve Garvey
