Reggie Jackson lived for backing his mouth up with his bat. Look no further than his famous 1977 World Series performance, one of the most dominating in history. Mr. October hit three home runs in three pitches in consecutive at bats. It’s the stuff legends are made of. Here’s Reg talking about the third home run.
"The next guy came in, Charlie Hough. And I had a tremendous record against Wilbur Wood and other knuckleball pitchers. And I looked around and said, ‘Nobody must know in the dugout that I kill knuckleballers.’ I couldn’t wait for him to be announced because once you’re announced, you gotta pitch. When he got announced I had a big smile on my face and I said, ‘I gotta chance to pop another one.’ And the first pitch he threw was boom."
