I’m #9 on the leader list

This is the highest I have ever been. I just want to say thank you to everyone
reggie-jackson-1.jpgfor reading and commenting on my blogs. It’s nice to know that people actually read them. =) I use this as my way to talk about baseball, cause none of my friends are die hard baseball fans like myself. I dedicate my #9 ranking to “Mr. October” Reggie Jackson. I know everyone knows Reggie’s #44 was retired by the Yankees. The A’s also retired Reggie’s #9 that he was wearing when he was with the A’s.
 
Reggie has made the All-Star team 14 times. He has been a world series champion 5 times, Silver Slugger Award 2 times, World Series MVP 2 times and the AL MVP 1 time. His induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame was 1993. He did receive 93.6% first ballot votes. Jackson’s career statistics were AVG .262, home runs 563 and RBI’s 1,702.
