Reggie Jackson was the first player in Major League history to amass 100 or more home runs for three different clubs: the A's, Yankees and Angels? "I must admit, when Reggie hit his third home run [in the 1977 World Series] and I was sure nobody was looking, I applauded in my glove." Steve Garvey
African American baseball player Reggie Jackson boasted an impressive career throughout the 70s, but cinched his spot as a legend when he hit three home runs in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, the most home runs ever by one player in a World Series game. He earned the nickname Mr. October for his impressive post-season performances. He was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1993.
