I had a lifetime batting of only .262 and hold the major
league record for striking out the most career times; 2,597.
But I was a major star and did a lot of damage with my bat.
I pounded opposing pitchers with home runs; in fact I hit
563 of them and led my league in HR's in 1973, 75, 80 and
1983. I was considered aloof and arrogant but in 21
seasons, I played on 6 pennant winners and 5 World Champions.
Thanks to me, the Oakland A's won three straight World Crowns.
As a Yankee slugger in the 1977 World Series I set the record
by belting 5 HR's in a six game series, including 3 in one
game. "I was the straw that stirred the drink".
Oh Yes! My month is coming soon - Mr. October
