Mr. October - Three Swings (Jackson)

In this astounding feat, “Mr. October” became legend. He was brought to the Bronx for one reason: win baseball’s legendary franchise its 21st World Series championship. He delivered as only he could, hitting three consecutive home runs in three consecutive at-bats on three consecutive first pitches to win the game and the Series. He had also hit a home run on his last at bat during the preceding game, making it 4 homers in 4 consecutive swings. Only “the straw that stirs the drink” could complete such a feat on the biggest stage in sports, this larger-than-life hero to many a young (and not so young) boy and girl. Playmaker: Pete C.
