Reggie Homers in Yankee Stadium Return

Originally published March 12, 2014

A largely forgotten blast from the early 1980's, Reggie Jackson absolutely destroys this offering from Yankee hurler Ron Guidry. Jackson, who earned the well-deserved nickname "Mr. October" with a blistering 3 HR performance in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series as a Yankee, homers into the upper deck at Yankee Stadium. This ball was a rocket, and similar to his Series exploits, was hit on the first pitch of this at-bat. This was Reggie's return to The House That Ruth Built after signing with the then-California Angels as a free agent.
