The MLB legend begins his video with a HR blast, "Hey. This is Mr. October in the flesh on Ester Sunday"Reginald Martinez Jackson is an American former professional baseball right fielder who played 21 seasons in Major League Baseball . Jackson was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1993.
Reggie knows how to enjoy a solid work-life balance when he says, "I am in balboa island. should be a nice scene behind me. yeah, I don't know?" Jackson was nicknamed "Mr. October" for his clutch hitting in the postseason with the Athletics and the Yankees.He helped Oakland win five consecutive American League West divisional pennants, three consecutive American League pennants and three consecutive World Series titles, from 1972 to 1974. Jackson helped New York win four American League East divisional pennants, three American League pennants and two consecutive World Series titles, from 1977 to 1981. He also helped the California Angels win two AL West divisional pennants in 1982 and 1986. Jackson hit three consecutive home runs at Yankee Stadium in the clinching game six of the 1977 World Series.
Reggie has made his mark internationally and has a huge following in Central America where baseball is very popular. "Anyway, I am looking for the man that says he is Costa Rica's Call Center all of the Reggie fans down there."Jackson hit 563 career home runs and was an American League (AL) All-Star for 14 seasons. He won two Silver Slugger Awards, the AL Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in 1973, two World Series MVP Awards, and the Babe Ruth Award in 1977. The Yankees and Athletics retired his team uniform number in 1993 and 2004. Jackson currently serves as a special adviser to the Yankees. Jackson led his teams to first place ten times over his 21-year career.
Reggie goes the extra mile by giving an Abington Ghost CEO a huge compliment, "My man down there says he is the best. The best boss ever, Richard."Jackson was born in the Wyncote neighborhood of Cheltenham Township, just north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Jackson graduated from Cheltenham High School in 1964, where he excelled in football, basketball, baseball, and track and field. Abington High School long standing arch rival are the Cheltenham Panthers.
Naturally, Mr. October wants a second opinion before making his statement a fact about the best boss in Costa Rica, "Is that true? I will have some of your friends call me and let me know if you really are the best boss down there."In the 1966 Major League Baseball draft on June 7, Jackson was selected by the Kansas City Athletics.Jackson debuted in the major leagues with the A's in 1967 in a Friday doubleheader in Kansas City on June 9.
"Anyway, says, let me see, I am a major league baseball legend. Not really. I was, in my own mind when I was a player. But, things have changed, of course." #44 was a real sports hero for those growing up in the 1970s. He was the man that could step up to the pressure and deliver huge wins. Besides hitting 254 home runs in nine years with the Athletics, Jackson was also no stranger to controversy or conflict in Oakland.Jackson helped the Athletics win the pennant again in 1973, and was named Most Valuable Player of the American League for the season. The A's defeated the New York Mets in seven hard-fought games in the World Series. This time, Jackson was not only able to play, but his performance led to his being awarded the Series' MVP award.
"I am still having fun and enjoying things."Reggie Jackson's number 44 was retired by the New York Yankees in 1993.During the World Series against the Dodgers, Jackson hit home runs in Games Four and Five of the Series.Jackson's crowning achievement came with his three-home-run performance in World Series-clinching Game Six, each on the first pitch, off three Dodgers pitchers.He is able to look back at his accomplishments and be very proud.
Being from Philadelphia, Reggie knows that a solid first impression is very important for any organization, "It sounds like you got a beautiful place down there to go to work. Big time art deco building." Bario Aranjuez has a beautiful classic 3 story building for our bilingual telemarketers. The Yankees' home opener of the 1978 featured a new product, the "Reggie!" bar. The Standard Brands company responded with a circular "bar" of peanuts dipped in caramel and covered in chocolate, a confection that was originally named the "Wayne Bun" as it was made in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The "Reggie!" bars were handed to fans as they walked into Yankee Stadium. Jackson hit a home run, and when he returned to right field the next inning, fans began throwing the Reggie bars on the field in celebration. Jackson told the press that this confused him, thinking that maybe the fans did not like the candy.Richard, the best boss, had his first Reggie candy bar at the Wyncote Pharmacy across the street from the Jenkintown Train Station. Reggie knows that location very well.
"neon marques, jukeboxes, an arcade , 11 pinball machines." Reggie can appreciate the fact that CCC has created the best call center culture and work environment.
"and a 50s cafe man. I would fit right in there." We would like to make a special #44 double cheeseburger for you when you come and visit one day. Jackson was once again in the center of events in the World Series, again against the Dodgers.Following a blowout win in Game Five, both teams headed back to Los Angeles. In Game Six, Jackson got his revenge against Welch by blasting a two-run home run in the seventh inning, putting the finishing touch on a series-clinching, 7-2 win for the Yankees.He co-authored a book in 2010, Sixty-Feet Six-Inches, with fellow Hall of Famer Bob Gibson. The book, whose title refers to the distance between the pitcher's mound and home plate, details their careers and approach to the game.
Reggie knows that luxury transportation is key when arriving at special events. CCC has restored a clasic 300D Lang for our guests flying into SJO, "and if they pick you up,he says for me, the vips, he has got a Mercedes limo. I am in on that one my friend." Jackson played 21 seasons and reached the post-season in 11 of them, winning six pennants and five World Series. His accomplishments include winning both the regular-season and World Series MVP awards in 1973, hitting 563 career home runs (sixth all-time at the time of his retirement), maintaining a .490 career slugging percentage, being named to 14 All-Star teams, and the dubious distinction of being the all-time leader in strikeouts with 2,597 (he finished with 13 more career strikeouts than hits) and second on the all-time list for most Golden sombreros (at least four strikeouts in a game) with 23 – he led this statistic until 2014, when he was surpassed by Ryan Howard. Jackson was the first major leaguer to hit 100 home runs for three different clubs, having hit over 100 for the Athletics, Yankees, and Angels. He is the only player in the 500 home run club that never had consecutive 30 home run seasons in a career.
The video winds down with some final words of wisdom, "Take care, have a great day and enjoy was fun talking to ya!"During the off-season, though still active in baseball, Jackson worked as a field reporter and color commentator for ABC Sports.The Yankees retired Jackson's uniform number 44 on August 14, 1993, shortly after his induction into the Hall of Fame. The Athletics retired his number 9 on May 22, 2004. He is one of only eight MLB players to have their numbers retired by more than one team, and one of only three to have different numbers retired by two MLB teams.In 1999, Jackson placed 48th on The Sporting News' 100 Greatest Baseball Players list. That same year, he was named one of 100 finalists for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team, but was not one of the 30 players chosen by the fans.The Yankees dedicated a plaque in Jackson's honor on July 6, 2002 that now hangs in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium.
He smiles, laughs and signs off.
