JIM CROW[edit]

Did Pennsylvania ever have Jim Crow laws? If not, it's rather silly to mention them in the text. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.55.6.146 (talk) 22:19, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

At first glance, I'm inclined to agree. However, the situation with racism in Birmingham and with his girlfriend's uncle indicate we need to look a little closer to decide whether or not it is appropriate. I'll do some research on this in the next day or so and give my opinion then. – Muboshgu (talk) 22:29, 16 November 2011 (UTC)


IQ[edit]

He is frequently cited to have an IQ of 160. Any truth to this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.85.3.79 (talk) 16:58, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Reggie Jackson was not on the 1972 World Series Champions[edit]

He injured his leg sliding into home winning the 5th game of the 1972 ALCS. He was not on the 25-man roster for the Fall Classic. I just reread Roger Angel's article about the '72 World Series (in his collection FIVE SEASONS) and he mentioned how Reggie was in the clubhouse for the celebration when the team won the Series, but soon left to go watch a football game on TV as he had not been a part of it.)

Did Cheltenham High's two most famous alumni, [Benjamin Netanyahu] & Reggie Jackson, know each other in high school?[edit]

Anybody?

Strikeouts[edit]

You're right, AutomaticStrikeout, the inclusion of Jackson's career K total is notable and should be listed in the stat box. I did this back in June, as seen here and the edit was subsequently reverted. Including the stat gives a more complete picture to the reader. WP is not a blog.

Consecutive times in the Fall Classic[edit]

What is the basis for this sentence in the 1980-81 section?

"Jackson had faced the Dodgers four straight times in the World Series by 1981. No other player in Major League history has played against the same team more consecutive times in the Fall Classic."

Huh? For example, Jackie Robinson played 6 consecutive World Series against the Yankees. Am I missing something, or is this badly worded? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 161.69.23.24 (talk) 21:49, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
