FameRank: 9

"Reginald Martinez "Reggie" Jackson" is a retired baseball/American baseball right fielder who played 21 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for five different teams (1967–1987). He was nicknamed ""Mr. October"" for his clutch hitter/clutch hitting in the postseason with the Oakland A's and the New York Yankees. Jackson won five consecutive American League West divisional pennants, three consecutive List of American League pennant winners/American League pennants and two consecutive World Series titles as a member of the Oakland Athletics (he did not play in the 1972 World Series due to injury) from 1971 to 1975; four American League East divisional pennants, three American League pennants and two consecutive World Series titles with the Yankees from 1977 to 1981; and two American League West divisional pennants with the Los Angeles Angels/California Angels in 1982 and 1986. He is perhaps best remembered for hitting three consecutive home runs in the clinching game of the 1977 World Series.

I was reminded that when we lose and I strike out, a billion people in China don't care.

A baseball swing is a very finely tuned instrument. It is repetition, and more repetition, then a little more after that.

I couldn't quit, because of all the kids, and the blacks, and the little people pulling for me. I represent both the underdog and the overdog in our society.
