Yankees vs. Red Sox, September 1977:
“Do you ask Babe Ruth to bunt—or Cookie Lavagetto? Willie McCovey—or Phil Rizzuto?
        "But I was learning. Billy Martin said bunt, I was prepared to bunt. Reggie Cleveland threw in on me, though, so I couldn’t get the bat out and had to take it for a ball. I looked back down to Dick Howser—and now the bunt was off. Cleveland threw me a fastball, and I fouled it off.
        "I looked back at Howser. The bunt sign was back on. Tell me, does this make any sense at all?
        "I got ready to bunt again, but Reggie Cleveland threw another ball in. It was like they were picking up the signs, which maybe they were. It was like they knew I was going to try to lay one down.
        "Personally, I thought they were making a mistake. If it was my team and Reggie Jackson wanted to bunt, let him bunt.
        "Instead, the count fell in my favor, the bunt was taken off, and Cleveland hung a slider. It was room service. The rest is history.”

No home run for Mr. October 9. Oktober 2013
Von Alan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Reggie already wrote an outstanding autobiography ("Reggie- the Autobiography") with Mike Lupica back in 1980's. That book was a far more comprehensive review of Reggie's life. If you read that book, this book wasn't going to tell you much more than what was contained in first book, and in "Reggie" he wasn't shy about naming names that are strangely not named in the stories repeated in "Becoming Mr. October." Since Reggie was an outstanding player and compelling personality, I expected more than what I got from this book. If you never read "Reggie" and don't intend to, "Becoming Mr. October" is a good book and that's why it got three stars. But instead of building from that book, Reggie basically recycled "Reggie" and therefore missed a chance to hit another October home run.

Very Poor 2. November 2013
Von JPusz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is poorly written and not very cohesive. The Bronx Zoo is a fascinating topic and Jackson is an all-time great baseball player. However this book is a struggle to read due to the long tangents and poor structure. At time it is incoherent and painful.
Mr. October should be ashamed of this book as it's style and lack of flow expose him in a very dim intellectual light.

Self serving rehash! 15. Dezember 2013
Von R. C Sheehy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I think the word self-serving would have to be invented if it did not exist. Reggie Jackson is rehashing arguments from years ago that people have long forgotten about except him. Basically, Reggie was perfect, maybe a bit brash but the issue was entirely Billy Martin. He was the cause of all the problems that existed around Reggie as was racism. Yes that's right two separate entities were responsible for all his problems. This could have been an opportunity to focus on a great time but Reggie can't let go of his animus towards Billy Martin which, granted, is probably legitimate but Martin is dead and Reggie does no favors by opening it all up again.

I was disappointed by the book and the story. The Bronx is Burning, a book Reggie hates, does a much better job telling this story.

Disappointing 9. Oktober 2013
Von D. Knowles - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Reggie attributes every criticism of his career to racism and the racists who didn't give him credit where credit is due. He even goes so far as to label anyone who doesn't like the current president as being bigots. He revises and rebukes 35 year old newspaper headlines and magazine articles for not being correct, takes issue with the movie, "The Bronx is Burning" (although he admits to never watching it) as being hurtful and fiction and disses the dead (Munson and Martin).
Save yourself from this egotistical piece of trash. I took mine back to the bookstore.

still crazy after all these years 15. Dezember 2013
Von Joe Fisco"Cabaret"@Studio 54 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I grew up with Reggie & will never forget his 3 Homers. It's still one of my greatest baseball memories as a kid. They being said, he still sounds like he has an axe to grind & the ego ! It's all about Reggie! He couldn't get off the subject of Billy Martin. He went on & on about it for the entire book & how he was mistreated. He sounds like a petulant child. He should've just shut his mouth, but he still doesn't get it.
