Induction Speech

Did You Know: 
that Reggie Jackson was the first player in Major League history to amass 100 or more home runs for three different clubs: the A's, Yankees and Angels?
I must admit, when Reggie hit his third home run [in the 1977 World Series] and I was sure nobody was looking, I applauded in my glove.
