Yankees Mr. October - 12" x 16" Print
Every Yankees legend has his signature moment. Reggie Jackson’s came on the biggest stage possible — the clinching game of the World Series. Mr. October earned his nickname in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series with a three-homer barrage, which made him the first man to amass those numbers in one contest since the Babe did it in pinstripes in 1928. When he stepped to the plate for his third at-bat, fans greeted him with chants of “REG-GIE, REG-GIE, REG-GIE!" and Jackson blasted off for a third and final time. Jackson’s three bombs were his third, fourth and fifth of the Series, which set the Major League record for most home runs in a single World Series, a mark that has only been matched once (Chase Utley, 2009).
