Yearbook, Oct. 18: Reggie Jackson, for three

Oct. 18, 1977: It was 35 years ago today that Reggie Jackson did what only Babe Ruth had done previously: hit three home runs in a World Series game.

Jackson did it in just three pitches, though, after walking in his first at-bat of the decisive Game 6 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The New York Yankees won the game 8-4 and the series 4-2, and Jackson was -- shockingly -- named World Series MVP.
