Re: Reggie and the glory days in Philadelphia

Just like in real life, the HOB3 Reggie Jackson surpassed the 500 homer plateau. In the HOB3 Jackson finished with 507 - good for 12th on the alltime list as of the 1986 season. He played 33 postseason games but was hardly a Mr. October, hitting just .242. He won his only 2 World Series rings in his first two seasons, but his best playoff performance was saved for the 1982 NLCS. Reggie batted .381 with 2 homers and 7 rbi's but his Houston Astros blew a 2 game lead and lost the series in 5 to the Mets.
Never an MVP, Jackson did have a solid 17 year career with Oakland, Baltimore and Houston. A 10-time allstar he was an automatic Hall of Famer due to his 500 homers.
REAL LIFE 2820 games, .262, 563 HR, 1702 RBI
HOB3 2585 games, .282, 507 HR, 1739 RBI
Reggie! How well did he do during those 1st few seasons? I'm wondering if my dad would have given me "Jackson" as a middle name (as he did in real life) if we were living in the HOB3 universe.
