Mr. October was a great baseball player, my dad’s favorite. My nickname is actually from Reggie.
Jackson isn’t known for his total number of home runs as much as he’s known for when he hit them. An example is shown below:
So that’s how he became to be known as Mr. October.
But who dares to challenge this great player?
Albert Pujols, that’s who.
About an hour ago, The Machine decided that he’s going to take Jackson down, to become 13th on the all-time home run list in Major League Baseball.
You can check out the video HERE.
The event is so new, it hasn’t come out on YouTube yet (except for a fan’s recording, but he didn’t show the actual home run).
Even though he passed Mr. October, a man that ranks up pretty high on my all-time favorites list, I think the Pujols just got over him. Barely.
(On a side note, got to see The Machine play for the first time in my life about a month ago in Spring Training. A check off my bucket list! I’ll include the pictures in case you guys want to see.)
