What a lot of people don't know about Reggie Jackson is that he was recruited by colleges to play both football and baseball. Both Alabama and Georgia, two of the top football programs in the Nation at the time, scouted him for football and were even willing to break the color barrier just for him. Reggie Jackson was one of those rare athletes that could have played professionally in any sport he wanted. He ended up choosing baseball and the rest is history.

I remember Jackson in '77 - five homeruns and that batting average, a memorable year. Here's to Mr. Robinson and Mr. Jackson!
