Yankee Stadium Legacy: #51 Reggie Jackson (Again)

Reggie Jackson only spent five seasons with the Yankees and got his uniform number retired so you know that he did a lot in his short time here. Postseason performances can help that out, especially in New York, and not many had bigger performances in the playoffs and World Series than Jackson. No performances were bigger than his game in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series where he sent three straight pitches over the Yankee Stadium wall against the hated Los Angeles Dodgers to win 8-4 and clinch the title. Of course Reggie was named World Series Most Valuable Player finishing with five home runs, eight RBI's, and 10 runs.

51 days until Yankees Opening Day
