Curtain calls have been part of the major league baseball celebratory lexicon for ages. One of the most famous curtain callers was no other than "Mr. October" Reggie Jackson.
The Yankee slugger was not bashful in showing his emotion as his outbursts and commentary were well documented throughout his career in New York. Jackson seemed to perform his best when the spotlight shone the brightest.
Jackson put on a tremendous power display in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, homering three times to guide the Yankees to a championship.The last home run off reliever Charlie Hough was hit so hard and far that it could still be traveling—35 years later.
His final curtain call will always leave in an indelible mark as he stood outside the Yankees dugout being serenaded by to the chants of "Reggie, Reggie, Reggie."
