Reginald Jirod Jefferson (born September 25, 1968 in Tallahassee, Florida) is a former designated hitter who played for the Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Seattle Mariners and the Boston Red Sox.
Reggie attended Lincoln High School in Tallahassee; he was a three-sport star, lettering in baseball, basketball and football.
For the Red Sox in 1996, he hit for a batting average of .347 which would have been third highest in the league if not for falling short in at-bats needed and was given the nickname 'The Miracle' by faithful Red Sox fans. Unable to hit left-handed pitchers, he was left off the 1999 playoff roster as a result. Jefferson stormed off and would never play major league baseball again.
