Quick Hit: Today Should Be Reggie Jackson Day

On this day in 2004 the Oakland Athletics retired the #9 jersey of Reggie Jackson. Jackson was honored for his nine Hall of Fame season with the A's and was a part of three consecutive World Series titles from 1972-1974. Jackson also had his #44 retired by the Yankees in 1993 becoming only the eight player to have his number retired by at least two teams in Major League history. That's quite the accomplishment, hate the guy or not.
